Do you remember the HBO Series “Remember When”?

rememeber-when-tv-series

This show, which ran from 1981-1985 was hosted by Dick Cavett and was a follow-up to the series “Time Was”. Each episode took a look back at a time in history or an event and used footage, photos and quality narration to get us to “Remember When”.

This show often ran early in the morning and I was completely addicted to it, sometimes setting my alarm clock to 6 AM just to make sure I could catch an episode (before we got a VCR). I can still remember the mournful theme song and how both excited and melancholy it made me feel.

I keep hoping that HBO will release it on DVD or start re-airing it somewhere else. In the meantime, I have had to make do with episodes that I find hosted online. Here is part 1 of the episode called “The Image Makers”, I hope you enjoy it as much I do.

  1. I have to admit, when I saw the post title in my newsfeed I was hoping it was a typo and you were talking about “Remember WENN”.
