| WOW! This was great!
This was a part of a series of educational films from the Bell System. It was written, directed and produced by Frank Capra, the legendary film maker. The series was hosted by Dr. Frank Baxter and featured the distinctive voice work of Sterling Holloway. I saw it first while I was in elementary school (almost before electricity) and it has stuck in my mind all this time. I recall seeing this two or three times, but to remain in my memory that long means that these films were good! This was the first time I'd ever seen footage of any sort of solar activity. Before seeing this film, I thought the sun was just a round ball, but they showed me solar flares. I learned that the surface of the sun is a violent, ever-changing place. I must have believed that the sun was solid, but learned that it's made of gas. I learned a lot from this series of films and I still remember them more than 40 years later.
