Pioneers of Television
"Roots," "Rich Man, Poor Man" and "The Thorn Birds" mastered the art of storytelling.
They fought villains, rescued the innocent and became role models to viewers of every age.
"Dallas," "Dynasty" and "Knots Landing" were all part of the nighttime soap frenzy.
This episode celebrates the first comediennes to appear on television.
