Conquest of Space (Series) (1969)

Host Percy Saltzman and announcer Bill Kehoe presented this five part program on space and space travel. In segments titled Sounds of Silence, The Other Side of the Sky, The High Frontier, A Star to Steer Her By, and Childhood's End, Saltzman examined the ideas of outer space from ancient times up to the Apollo space program, which had just put a man on the moon. The series concentrated on the period that started in 1957 with the Soviet Union's Sputnik launch, and examined space exploration through interviews with aerospace engineers and scientists. Film editor Robert Murphy assembled film footage collected from the U.S.A., the Soviet Union, the U.K., and France. The series was written by Noel Moore and produced in Ottawa by Rod Holmes.
