This TV series was inspired by the bestselling book by David Wallechinsky and Michael Medved. David Wallechinsky is the son of international celebrated novelist Irving Wallace. Wallechinsky was the original family name from Russia. When David's grandfather, Illya Wallechinsky (aka Alex) immigrated to America at the age of 14, an immigration officer on Ellis Island said, "Illya Wallechinsky? That's not an American name. Your name is now Alex Wallace." David took back the original family name. David and his father, along with David's sister Amy Wallace, collaborated on a number of nonfiction books, including the hugely successful book series The People's Almanac and The Book of Lists.

What Really Happened To The Class Of '65 was broadcast here in Holland in the summer of 1978 I believe. Such a shame there was never a re-run, I still remember the episodes fondly. I vividly remember the episode about the Vietnam veteran who went on a swimming challenge, was that character played by a young Don Johnson? Is there anyone who has this stuff on videotapes? If so, please upload them somewhere so we can see them again! About the theme song: there is a download to be found on venicecentral.com where the band Venice sings this song, but I'm not sure if it's the original recording from the series. But hearing this song sure brought back memories.
