PASADENA– Lecture & Book Signing: Space Patrol: Missions of Daring
April 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm$15
PASADENA– Relive the thrilling days of early live TV as journalist Jean Noel Bassior, author of Space Patrol: Missions of Daring in the Name of Early Television, takes you behind the scenes of this ground-breaking series that paved the way for science fiction film and TV.
Before Star Trek, there was Space Patrol, a wildly popular 1950s TV show shot live at ABC. It was a time when just about anything could happen live on air – and did – before millions of views. It was also a time when compassionate heroes like the Lone Ranger and Space Patrol’s Commander Buzz Corry were revered; when role models you could trust showed up, “same time, same station,” in your living room, teaching life lessons you never forgot. If you grew up with early TV or want to explore its elusive magic, you’ll hear real-life stories from those thrilling days of yesteryear and get a chance to share your own memories in this interactive talk.
