Original Video of The Now Explosion produced in Atlanta, GA, in 1970, has been recovered by video archivists at the University of Georgia at Athens, GA. The marathon music-TV concept was launched in Atlanta ten years before MTV or VH1. Video segments originally broadcast in 1970 and stored in a south Florida garage for 3 1/2 decades have been remastered by the UGA archives to contemporary technical standards and obtained by the original producer, Robert Whitney. It's a bit of a miracle - but now - we've actually got some of the historic Now Explosion video, short samples of which are shown in this Fair Use archival presentation.

The "stars" of this invention were energetic and talented amateur performers and ballet students dancing spontaneously in a sea of 1970's special effects invented by young producers in Atlanta, Dallas, Memphis, Kansas City, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Philadelphia. The program was also seen in other cities, including New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Charlotte, San Francisco and Sacramento in 1970.
