Video: Gene Roddenberry on TO TELL THE TRUTH

This is from 1977 or 1978.

Hat tip to Booksteve's Library!

Kind of surreal, don't you think?

How come they're playing the theme music to "The Starlost" in the opening?

That was a good catch on the music, Bob. I'm guessing it was a rights clearance issue -- more likely, TO TELL THE TRUTH may have had no budget for music rights. I'm just guessing, but these programs were (and still are) cheap shows to produce. I'm just guessing, but maybe THE STARLOST was something that was owned by the network, whereas Paramount might have wanted a few bucks for the TREK theme; a few bucks that the game show producers would not pay.
