The most popular segments with the audience were stories about animals and sports. Written by Lillian Benson, editor

It brought our world together....if only for a day
1 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

May sound incredibly 'hokey', but who cares. Seriously though.....my memories of this show are fairly scattered. For the mid-70's, the cinematography and ground effects were amazing. They took you to all corners of the universe--similar to todays HISTORY and DISCOVERY channels. Only this show WAS universal for its time. You never knew one week to the next if you'd visit Singapore, Bangladesh, Albania, etc. And that was just the beginning. There were several mini-series' and other specials aired....'The Witch's Sister', most profoundly. For 1979, it is probably the most remembered. And Witch's Sister became so popular BBM actually re-aired it a few more times. The ending (and beginning) tags really highlighted the post-racial overtones of brother/sisterhood, reminding us that we all live under the same sky, same God.
