Broadcast Medium: Television

Aired Thursday nights at 10:30 from May 12 to June 2, 1966.

Following her success on Take 30, which usually aired in the afternoons, Adrienne Clarkson got her first prime time talk show for a short run in 1966. This program, produced by Vincent Tovell, had an interesting angle: belief in the space age. Clarkson interviewed astronaut Frank Borman, humanitarian Jean Vanier, botanist Pierre Dansereau, philosopher George Grant, and Christopher Kraft Jr., director of NASA’s Gemini space program.
