July 1st, 2009 - The Roads Must Roll!

“Oh, If you quote that nauseating slogan at me again, I’ll divorce you!”


On the 4th of January 1956, NBC broadcast an episode of a show called ‘X Minus One,’ a venture between the broadcaster and Street and Smith, publishers of Astounding Science Fiction magazine. This episode is called ‘The Roads Must Roll,’ and is based on the Robert Heinlein story of the same name. It’s written by Ernest Kinoy.

Imagine transportation beyond the automotive freeways — Rolling roads move people and goods from place to place at speeds of up to 100 miles-per-hour. This is the story of the men who keep the roads rolling at all costs, no matter what.
