Mary Birdsong was on Reno 911 and in The Descendents… and she LOVES
Biblical Archeology… what? I think she’s a Hebrew-o-phile! And… there are
dick jokes. Eddie Pepitone closes with stand up. It’s great. Enjoy, Rangers.

    Better...CONNECTIONS actually debuted on PBS in 1979. And like NAT GEO's debut episode on PBS ("The Incredible Machine"--the highest rated PBS program till THE CIVIL WAR started beating the other networks in some markets a decade and a half later), had some casual female nudity in it. Teenaged me approved.

    You know, the '70s might've been the height of voiceover actors on science and nature series, what with Will Lyman on most NOVAs (PBS), Alexander Scourby on at least many NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SPECIALS (on CBS and then PBS in the '70s); William Conrad on the Time/Life syndicated US package of WILD, WILD WORLD OF ANIMALS, and Serling on COUSTEAU (a spinoff from NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, no less). Then Nimoy on the fringe-thing IN SEARCH OF...(almost anti-science, too often). (If we like to tote them up, Conrad's primary fantasy-tv credit would be as narrator for ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE; I won't be so rude as to count Scourby's Bible-recording in the same class.) And in 1980, in the States, we saw the first PBS importation of James Burke's BBC series CONNECTIONS and CBS started offering Walter Cronkite's summer science-news series UNIVERSE. Golden (or at least gold-leaf) ages kinda sneak up on one...those two were more than solely narrators, but good voices as well...

    Come to think of it, my other favorite science series in the '70s was also narrated by a sf/fantasy television legend...ABC's THE UNDERSEA WORLD OF JACQUES COUSTEAU, with v/o by Rod Serling.

    I think the series with Nimoy narrating Birdsong was thinking of was the general-purpose "weird" phenomenon series, the syndicated IN SEARCH OF... (a series that would drive me up a wall as a kid as much as I, conversely, appreciated the early NOVA on PBS).
