Rotary Golden Theater (OTRR Certified)


The Rotary Golden Theater was produced by the International Rotary Association in 1955 to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary. Consisting of thirteen 15 minute episodes, it was provided to local Rotary Clubs for broadcast on local stations. In conjunction, thirteen discussion scripts were also offered to be used as follow-up broadcasts or for use as program and educational material where local broadcast might not be possible.

Broadcast from March 1, 1955 through March 18, 1955, five times a week.

Each episode featured a different situation involving persons with a problem, with the solution being provided by the Rotary Club. Typical of the recordings is “Youth, Yesterday and Today”. Originally broadcast on March 15, 1955, it deals with a former convict who gathers a gang of underprivileged youths and trains them to steal automobile accessories. Through a Rotarian druggist, through whom one of the young men is employed, the Rotary Club becomes aware of the situation, finds a way to appeal to the boy’s better nature, and through a series of highly dramatic sequences, the Rotary Club helps the police catch the former convict. The program ends with many of the boys being rehabilitated and finding lives of useful purpose. The program may seem to be dated, but the moral implications come across loud and clear.
