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.

Can't believe I was able to remember this title
I also recall this as being a summer series, although IMDb lists the it as being 'released" in December. As a high school kid, I loved the concept, and remember being quite moved by one particular episode. A girl who was part of a popular clique in high school, ends up in some kind of job assisting the poor. When she runs into these same friends again years later, she can no longer relate to them, due to their cruelty toward somebody she had brought (to a reunion?). I, too, would love to see this again. Perhaps it was a mid-season replacement starting in Dec. 77, and then was repeated in the summer of 78? Our family owned a cabin in the mountains, and we would spend a month there each summer. I remember that, during the summer this was broadcast, our TV died and I had to find a neighboring cabin with a TV, to make sure I didn't miss an episode.
Update 2010: My 30th reunion this year - would love to see this series.
