Writers original script for the 'Our World' TV broadcast on 25 June 1967, written by the British Broadcasting Corporation and the European Broadcasting Union, British, 1967

'Our World', broadcast on 25 June 1967, was the first television programme to be broadcast live around the world. This was made possible by the use of three geostationary telecommunications satellites. Contributions from fourteen countries were woven together by the script writer Antony Jay. Based on a unifying theme of ‘population’ the broadcast was split into sections titled 'The Hungry World’, ‘The Crowded World’, ‘Physical Excellence’, ‘Artistic Excellence’ and ‘The World’s Beyond’ – which combined segments from celebrities alongside footage of everyday life.
