I’m gone that weekend, but I’ve got the DVR set.

I’m finally watching the shows I recorded last week.

The Nile was shot in 1977, but it really has a '60s feel to it. I loves me some documentaries shot MOS and foleyed later. It just seems pre-'70s to me, though. (There are some synch scenes as well.)

I just read the memoir by his son–“My Father, the Captain . . .”. I remember watching those shows back when I was a kid. Pretty cool. It was the anniversary of his 100th birthday, June 11.
