Promotional booklet for NBC's educational television programs, containing black-and-white stills and text describing the network's moral philosophy to provide high-quality educational programming in addition to pure entertainment. The text surveys their offerings, from opera and music to history, travel documentary and interviews with the likes of Bertrand Russell and Pablo Picasso, which are provided at no cost to local stations. An interesting document of a precursor to public broadcasting in the development of television.
