The "Adventure" film

In 1954 Haskins Laboratories was featured in an episode of the CBS Television documentary show "Adventure" hosted by Charles Collingwood. The episode consisted of two segments, the first about research at Haskins and the second about Bali. The video on this page is a short version of what has become known as the "Adventure" film, showing only the Haskins segment of the episode.

The "Adventure" film features Frank Cooper, Alvin Liberman and Pierre Delattre demonstrating the use of the Haskins Pattern Playback.

Please note that the quality of this video is not good because of multiple transfers over the years from film to videotape and then to digital form.
