ABC Scope

ABC Scope is a public affairs program that appeared on the ABC television network from 1964–1968, hosted by Howard K. Smith, the future anchor of the ABC Evening News.  News reporters Louis Rukeyser, Frank Reynolds and John Scali also appeared.

The program provided its viewer with an in-depth look at the important political, economic and social issues that the world faced in the mid-to-late 1960s.  Although Smith hosted the show, the program provided its audience with one-on-one interviews of important newsmakers, documentaries on various subjects and roundtable discussions between a group of experts.
