AT ISSUE consists of 69 half-hour and hour-long documentaries produced from 1963–1966 by Al Perlmutter for National Educational Television. The programs explored a wide variety of topics, including news, business, economics, social issues, journalism, global affairs, technology, transportation, health, agriculture, employment, science, environment, energy, war and conflict, politics and government, film and television, law enforcement and crime, and race and ethnicity. The programs were originally shot on film in black and white – and then, as technology developed, on videotape in color.
Following are the AT ISSUE productions that remain in the archives.
