Description
Episode Description
What's New visits the Little Red Schoolhouse in New York City's Greenwich Village for a "Journey into Nutrition." Cameras follow the young students in the classroom as they learn about the nutritional value of food. They learn how various ethnic groups cook and the nutritional needs these exotic foods fulfill. The children visit surrounding ethnic communities such as Chinatown and cook some foreign foods such as Greek stuffed grape leaves. This film is made possible by a grant from the Nutrition Foundation. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
Other Description
What's New is a children's series that ran from 1961-1973. The early seasons typically consist of multiple segments, each from an ongoing series on a specific topic. Each segment was produced by a separate educational broadcasting station, and the linkage between the segments was produced by WHYY and hosted by Al Binford. In episodes from later seasons the format varies more, with many episodes focusing on one story or topic throughout the entire 30 minutes. (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
