Our World, 1967

39 years ago, on June 25, 1967, was broadcasted the first international satellite television production, named Our World. In this project, a total of twenty six nations took part; it had a duration of two hours and had an audience of about 400 million people all around the globe. It was broadcasted by the European Broadcasting Union (being basically organized and produced by the BBC in London, England) and it was spread all around the world with the help of satellites Intelsat-1, Intelsat-2 and ATS-1.
The most attractive part of this program was the show given by The Beatles, Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones, among others.
This was for sure an event that made a difference in the history of TV and satellite telecommunications, wasn't it?
