A YouTube search for the phrase “serling writing for tv” turns up many videos of Rod teaching a seminar on Writing For Television, recorded at Ithaca College circa 1972 and appearing on Laserdisc during the 90s.

In these videos he speaks about being one of 11 million WWII veterans who came home with a horrific and memorable experience in common. That experience was the engine behind much of his writing during the 1950s Golden Age of Television. In fact, he began writing as therapy while recovering from a war wound.
