The Saga of Western Man

ABC Television

Through ABC’s The Saga Of Western Man, John Secondari and Helen Jean Rogers, his wife, have made history of the last five hundred years come alive and have brought into meaningful focus the stirring events and personalities that created our era and the revolution still in progress. With the aid of color television, they have let us see and perhaps better understand not only what happened in the western world, but how and why. This brilliant series shows how great an educational tool television can be when it is expertly employed, and as such merits the Peabody Award for TV education, 1963.
