NBC University of The Air presented several educational programs between 1942 and 1948. The subject matter and themes ranged from politics and philosophy, to music appreciation and history. The programming from NBC University of The Air was deemed so instructive that it was incorporated into the curricula of many high schools, colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and Canada during the period. Indeed, Columbia University of New York collaborated extensively with NBC in developing several of NBC University of The Air productions throughout the era. By far the most interesting and instructive of the NBC University of The Air canon was the We Came This Way series of docudramas tracing the development of the American culture, values, legal system, and ideals from the earliest framework for these aspects of modern society throughout modern civilization.
