Spanning the Globe with ABC Sports
In The World Was Our Stage, producer/director Doug Wilson recounts his incredible fifty-year journey with ABC Sports and its beloved sports anthology program ABC's Wide World of Sports. Wilson's career spanned nearly all of the show's groundbreaking run from 1961 through 1998. His natural storytelling style and entertaining anecdotes capture not only "the human drama of athletic competition"—the hallmark of ABC's coverage—but also the unforgettable golden era of sports television.
