The Magic of Early, Live TV

Featuring: Jean-Noel Bassior

In this podcast, we feature Jean-Noel Bassior, a journalist, creativity coach, and the author of Space Patrol: Missions of Daring in the Name of Early Television, a book that takes readers back to the “Golden Age” of the 1950s when Earthlings pioneered television. It was a time when the compassionate hero was still revered, when kids and adults alike drew inspiration from role models like The Lone Ranger, Captain Video, Hopalong Cassidy and Commander Buzz Corry of the Space Patrol. The book tracks the birth of live TV, when just about anything could happen—and did—before millions of viewers.
