NPR: 50 years ago, ‘Zoom’ spoke to children about their real lives

NPR: 50 years ago, ‘Zoom’ spoke to children about their real lives. “For pre-teens watching TV in the early 1970s, the opening to Zoom was captivating with seven, charismatic, barefoot kids in rugby shirts running, jumping, dancing and singing on a bare stage. They beckoned young viewers with the lyrics, ‘Come on and zoom, zoom, zoom-a zoom. You gotta zoom, zoom, zoom-a zoom.’… To celebrate Zoom’s 50th anniversary, the American Archive of Public Broadcasting has made more than 100 episodes available to stream online for the first time.”
