This public affairs program was a successor to Through the Eyes of Tomorrow, a program written and produced by young people in their early 20s. The production team was supervised by Don Elder and John Ryan. The younger producers were Marie Morgan, Richard Wells, Allen Kates and Ed Fitzgerald.
In the first season, the program presented film features, interviews and discussions, and concentrated on activities of young adults. It also explored such concepts as communal organizations and other alternative ways of life, popular music, art and culture, social welfare and its relation to young people, and suicide among youth.
In the second season, the series adopted a magazine format, and Ian McCutcheon replaced Richard Wells as a host and editor.
