The World Was Our Stage: Spanning the Globe with ABC Sports
In THE WORLD WAS OUR STAGE, producer/director Doug Wilson recounts his incredible fifty-year journey with ABC Sports and its beloved sports anthology program ABCs WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS. His natural story telling style and entertaining anecdotes capture not only "the human drama of athletic competition"--the hallmark of ABCs coverage--but also the unforgettable golden era of sports television. Wilsons perspectives on celebrated athletes such as Muhammad Ali, Evel Knievel, Peggy Fleming, Arthur Ashe, and Scott Hamilton, among many others, are both humorous and poignant--all revealed against a background of historical events of the last half of the twentieth century. THE WORLD WAS OUR STAGE reflects the spirit of the sporting world and the wonders of modern technology as they merged on television and set the standard for sports programming in the twenty-first century.
