Trivia

Artist Salvador Dali, rather miffed that he was not asked to be interviewed for an episode dedicated to his work, left a brief, curt message for Producer Clare Roskam: "I'm not dead, you know". See more »

Greatly appreciated! Sorely missed!

This was a weekly obsession of mine. Sunday morning before anyone else was up I could huddle close to our 21-inch, black and white TV and get an infusion of arts, culture and literature. "Camera Three" did not discriminate. Anything from Tom & Jerry cartoons to high opera was fair game. One week might be an examination of torch songs, and the next would be Shakespeare, and the week after that would be Japanese films. Examples were given and experts were brought in. There were no ads. It was done as a service for people who felt ignored by by the television industry. Remember, this was at a time when TV was acknowledged to be a cultural wasteland. "Omnibus" was the only other program that served that portion of the viewing public that had free-range curiosity. Nowadays, CBS "Sunday Morning" attempts to address that niche, but, nice as it is, it doesn't reach the same noetic level.
