PBS Video - Pioneers of Television: Superheroes

On the PBS program, Pioneers of Television, this week they featured an episode called "Superheroes". It covers the early history of the appearance of comic book characters on television and also crosses many eras: "Superman" in the 1950s, "Batman" in the 1960s, "Wonder Woman" and "The Incredible Hulk" in the '70s and "The Greatest American Hero" in the '80s. 

They all fought villains, rescued the innocent and became role models. The episode features in-depth interviews with Adam West, Burt Ward, Julie Newmar, Lynda Carter, Lou Ferrigno, William Katt and others.

Well, here's the entire episode, enjoy!
