On the Frontier of Space (Miniseries) (1959)

The CBC prepared this series of 3 half-hour broadcasts on the evolution of missiles and rockets from the weapons of World War II to the launch of Sputnik, and beyond. The first program concerned the actual machines and hardware, from the development of the Vi by Germany and its use in the 1940s, and progressed to the evolution of space vehicles. The second part explored the relations between rocket technology and humans who develop and use it for space exploration. The concluding program speculated on the problems and possibilities for human exploration in outer space.
