Twenty-three episodes of this weekly television
series that aired on New York's WNYC-TV prior to the opening
of the 1964/1965 New
York World's Fair and beyond are presented
for you in a six-volume set. Each episode is approximately 30
minutes long and each volume contains three or four episodes.
Hosted by the Fair's Vice-president of
Communications, these shows contain interviews with both World's
Fair Officials and exhibitor representatives. They offer the
viewer of wealth of information regarding the contents of many
of the pavilions and a behind-the-scenes view of what went into
the creation of a show and how the World's Fair was put together.
There is little in the way of "glitz."
