Satellite TV before satellites
9 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series was a forerunner of the kind of "talking heads" genre that we now take for granted.

It connected political leaders, authors, and academics from around the world via phone lines. While the international conference call meetings took place, each participant was shot on 16 mm sound film. After the sessions the films were flown to NYC where they were edited together to give the appearance of what we'd call a satellite teleconference today. This was several years before Telstar, the first communications satellite.

I was only a kid when this series aired, but I recall it airing during a Sunday afternoon "ghetto" of highbrow programs. This was before the NFL dominated Sunday afternoon TV.

Edward R. Murrow narrated, one of his more obscure, but far-reaching projects.
