This video is part of an ongoing project to build a retrospective TV archive made for the LL community on my Retro TV channel at
This show was originally broadcast from 1973 to 1978, 5 seasons with 129 episodes. Narrated by William Conrad this series included documentaries from various production companies from around the world.
When I was a kid and heard this distinct theme music I knew I was in for 30 minutes of awesomeness. Not only was it one of the coolest animal shows on TV it was a lead in to a great evening of shows, next on would be The Wonderful World of Disney and maybe a movie. Other great docu-shows like this were Marty Stouffers Wild America and of course Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, and more. All of which will be posted eventually.
Much better than the weak docu-drama's you see today where the show is mostly about some Star who spends most of the show on the screen showing you their family, where they went to school or what their favorite animal is, how they like to fold their laundry etc. These classic documentary shows were all about the amazing animals.
This is not currently available anywhere any more, not on tape, TV, DVD or Blueray. It's not likely to be seen on digital media any time soon. Enjoy.
"...comes with ever'thing you see right cheer" ROFL love that!!
