Zoom: The Children’s Television Revolution in the ’70s

Jun 26, 2020

Before it referred to the now ubiquitous online conversation platform, ZOOM was the name of an educational children’s television program that premiered on PBS in 1972. Developed by Christopher Sarson, this largely unscripted show featured a DIY aesthetic and a cast made up almost entirely of non-professional kids.

On June 26, 2020, MoMI’s Director of Curatorial Affairs Barbara Miller moderated a discussion with ZOOM original cast members Tommy White, Leon Mobley, and Bernadette Yao; series creator Christopher Sarson; and David Kamp, author of Sunny Days: The Children’s Television Revolution That Changed America, about the conception of ZOOM in the wake of plaza Sésamo, its lasting legacy, and its continued relevance.
