The Birth of Modern Times
AIRED:
The program begins with the Renaissance period in 1492 with Charlton Heston and Betsy Von Furstenberg showing modern man's awakening to art, music and letters. Senior writer Robert Coughlan of LIFE magazine and an authority on the period will seek to recreate the color of the year 1492 when the Renaissance reached its peak in ideas, discoveries, inventions, politics and the arts. Future plans include subjects as various as the Battle of Gettysburg, the art of William Shakespeare and the hydrophilia of Esther Williams.moreless

      • Although the excursions of Omnibus frequently seem to float into the more rarified regions, Producer Robert Saudek insists the show is not meant for highbrows. "TV is too big to appeal to a United audience," he says. "It would be a little like using a freight train to carry one box of eggs. Instead, we go on the assumption that we will try to appeal to the 'middlebrow'."
