Satellites Lost And Found
Program Number


Series Description

Hosted by Eric Sevareid. ENTERPRISE's pioneering use of the "case study" approach to business documents high level decisions as they are taking place in the executive boardrooms. ENTERPRISE deliberately shows decision making processes as they occur. Business is treated as a human endeavor rather than an economic phenomenon. It goes beyond the statistics and charts to show real people making critical decisions and then bearing the consequences. ENTERPRISE benefits from the expertise of the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration (as Harvard professors act as advisors to each program.) Ex Prod: Zvi Dor-Ner / Each individual episode has different producer Series release date: 10/1981

Program Description

UPDATE of previous Enterprise program "Space Salvage." When two satellites launched from NASA's space shuttle were lost in space Feb '84, a science fiction nightmare suddenly became a reality -- with staggering financial consequences for their insurer, Lloyds of London. This program traces successful efforts by Lloyd's to recover the errant satellites.
