Quote:Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom started in ancient times (ie, before I was a thing) but ran in syndication until the late-80s. Perkins retired from the show in, like, 85.
I didn't know that show ran so long! I watched it as a kid in the 70s! I watched it with my father and my sister, on Sunday evenings if I'm not mistaken. I'm glad it survived into the 80s. A show about survival survived. There's poetry there.
Quote:There was a PBS series called, simply, Nature. I think it may still come on.
I vaguely remember that one.
Quote:And of course, there's the David Attenborough Life series.
Don't remember that one.
Quote:For general science: Nova (but it started in the 70s).
Nova, yes, I certainly remember that one, though I didn't watch it with any of the regularity I applied to Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom.
Quote:A favourite of mine was Connections (with James Burke), which was a 70s thing, but it came back twice in the 90s (Connections2 & 3). Burke also did The Day the Universe Changed in the mid-80s.
Those I never heard of.
