What In the World




What In the World
 1951 | WCAU-TV

To that intriguing and learned program, What In the World, presented by the University of Pennsylvania and the University Museum, over CBS-TV, for the stimulating manner in which it brings noted scholars in such fields as anthropology and art to the television screen for a delightfully entertaining and informal display of their learning. Here is superb blending of the academic and the entertaining. Watching the erudite participants on What In the World, one realizes that although a little knowledge may be a dangerous thing, a great deal of knowledge is a wonderful thing indeed.
