The second disc takes on weather reporting (including a James Bond-ish way of changing the weather), how satellites work, and the touchstone 1958 short "Our Friend the Atom," a staple of explaining the world of atomic energy. Shown for the first time in its entirety is an informative pitch for EPCOT. It's not a version of the theme park now in Florida, but Walt Disney's lyrical vision of a city of the future, a dream never realized with his death two months after filming in 1966. Leonard Maltin introduces each segment, putting it in historical context and noting some political incorrectness and oversights, like atomic energy having no downside. The programs still entertainingly show the promises of the future: humans on Mars seem so tangible, even though the space program lost its way in the forthcoming decades. --Doug Thomas
Walt Disney Treasures Wave 3 (one of the best waves!)
They were fascinating, and the ideas presented there about space travel and what could be done were very innovative for that time period.
This DVD is a great way to bring back those memories and relive a few of the better moments from a baby boomer's early years.
A priceless treasure trove of of Disney as the premier futurist. The animation and the information is stunning and a joy to behold. Never mind the dated science. Read morePublished 23 days ago by JP Fish
