"Insist on your right to be equal!"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Between_Time_and_Timbuktu"Between Time and Timbuktu is a television film directed by Fred Barzyk and based on a number of works by Kurt Vonnegut. Produced by National Educational Television and WGBH-TV in Boston, Massachusetts, it was telecast March 13, 1972 as a NET Playhouse special."I saw this live in 1972 on a rather small black and white tv.
