- Space Salvage
- 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
Hosted by Eric Sevareid. When two satellites launched from NASA's space shuttle were lost in space in Feb '84, a science fiction nightmare suddenly became a reality -- with staggering financial consequences for their insurer, Lloyds of London. While the satellite belonged to the government of Indonesia, Lloyds of London had to bear the loss. Now it has become virtually impossible for anyone to purchase insurance against the risks for similar space ventures.
