About ten years ago, I caught some programs on late-late night TV that looked to be '50s or '60s-era propaganda pieces extolling the space-race. I think that they were probably put out by NASA. They seemed to be directed towards high-school aged kids, because they devoted some segments to kids who showed promise as scientists or engineers. But mostly, they consisted of segments describing what kinds of missions NASA had planned, with animations depicting how the spacecraft would separate and land, so forth.
I’d like to find these again. Does my description ring any bells?
