It is man’s oldest dream come true.

Through the screen of your postwar television receiver, the pleasures of tomorrow’s peacetime world will come to you in overflowing measure. You’ll see a rich, living tapestry woven from the glamor, the laughter and suspense of the theatre and the sports field. You’ll enjoy a new kind of university for all the family… with magic carpet lessons… and world leaders as teachers. You’ll thrill at a Twentieth-Century newspaper that mirrors events as they transpire; conferring on every man the honor of participating in things worthwhile, lifting him to new joy and new dignity in the history of the world.
