A local television station ran this show late, late on a weekend night. I think one night my sister watched with me, but most of the time it was just me. I remember that the Sandy Dennis Joan of Arc was amazing. I remember not caring much for the the episode in which the presenter Patrick Watson interviewed himself as Leonardo da Vinci. But the episode I'm talking about was the Bernard Shaw episode, which liberally quoted from Man and Superman. I had never heard of Shaw and it was clear that his-- Shaw's-- writing was profound and novel. I got the play including The Revolutionist's Handbook and Maxims for Revolutionists, and that was the beginning of my education about Nietzsche and the criticism of conventional morality.
