Trivia

Oddly, the episodes of this show were neither 30 minutes nor 60 minutes but were in fact 45 minutes long. This and another show that also ran 45 minutes made up an hour and a half block on the ABC Network in 1969. This would not be unique in Great Britain nor some other European countries but highly unusual for American network television. See more »

Mixed romance?
15 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I will never forget one gripping episode of The New People.It had to do with the budding romance of one of the white guys with the very pretty black female.The person who"tripped"the most over this daring relationship was one of the black males in the stranded group.

The reason I was so struck by this episode was that at the time I was going through some similar"changes"in my own life.I had befriended a couple of black women but also was alarmed and frightened by some of the reactions to these friendships among black men.Some whites were pretty hostile as well but 1969 was the time of Black Power and militancy so that vibe predominated back then.

Ironically,I was a big supporter of black causes(list provided upon request)but on a personal level that fact was often not considered during the heat of the times.
