"A three-part editorial series highlighting the urgent need for rapid transit in the San Francisco Bay area. Films, still photographs, expert spokesmen, rear projection slides and narration were used to bring the problem before KPIX-TV viewers. The materials were synthesized in a documentary form for maximum information and impact."--1956 Peabody Digest. This is the first episode in the 3-part series, introduced by station manager Philip G. Lasky. Discussed in relation to local transit are issues of population growth and commuter traffic in the San Francisco area. There are some dramatized scenarios.
