Trivia

In contrast to the standard procedure in the 1960s, the first season was filmed in color and to cut costs the second season was in black & white. The producers had originally thought that color TV would progress faster then it did. See more »

A prompt to think....
2 June 2003 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Saturday night were not the same unless I and my friends watched Truman Bradley with his sonorous introdyctions to thoughtful, CLEAN, decent, law-abiding stories. On Mondays in school we would all buzz likes busy bees telling each other how we would change the story...and well as look up in some ponderous encyclopedia the information we gleaned from the program; was there really a star called Alpha-Centauri A? To mimic the laboratry scenic design, I stuck an icepick into the center of a Lloyd Harris pie pan and created my own "radar" antenna- Wow!!! It looked JUST LIKE MR. BRADLEY'S! The program inspired my curiosity about things scientific and I also began to memorize the names and faces of the character actors. I finally found some of the programs on CDs and ordered them immediately. How my brain was re-stimulated and pleasurized by those episodes. Thank science that we denizens of the Theatre's fantasy-land can now enjoy Mr. Bradley and those wonderful stories.
