Produced by the public affairs department of the American Broadcasting Company, Directions was that network's "answer" to the established religious programs on NBC and CBS. This Sunday-afternoon series ran from November 13, 1960 to March 25, 1984. Each year, the show's title underwent a subtle change, hence this video's cognomen, Directions '66. At this juncture (1966), the series was experimenting with music and drama as means to convey its nondenominational message. In this video, a pious couple (Nancy Marchand and Lawrence Keith) have their faith sorely tested when they take charge of a group of "problem kids."
