ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on television. This business of television being "live" has its points and certainly impresses a great many people. Time, in commenting on this show, spoke with seeming awe of "the immediacy of things happening this very minute." I agree that immediacy can be important, but whether it is or not depends, I think, on whether or not the "things," have any value. It seemed to me that in those last ninety seconds I had seen a much truer picture of youth on Sunday than in all the time that had gone before.
