This rambling and slightly experimental drama attempts to pass itself off as "relevant" to the "youth revolution" of the 1960s. The story follows the attempts of a girl who has spent the last year living outside her native Switzerland to rekindle a former love affair. When her immature young friend fails to demonstrate the requisite interest, she takes up with someone the boy disapproves of. When the boy kicks the man, the man leaves both the boy and his erstwhile ex-girlfriend to their own devices.

Newton's Apple is an American educational television program produced and developed by KTCA, and distributed to PBS stations in the United States that ran from 1983 to 1999. The show's title is based on the rumor of Isaac Newton sitting under a tree and an apple falling near him—or, more popularly, on his head—prompting him to ponder what makes things fall, leading to the development of his theory of gravitation. The show was produced by Twin Cities Public Television. For most of the run, the show's theme song was Ruckzuck by Kraftwerk, later remixed by Absolute Music. Later episodes of the show featured an original song. NPR science correspondent Ira Flatow was the show's first host, later succeeded by David Heil, then assistant director of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Peggy Knapp was a longtime field reporter and served as co-host in the 14th season. The last season was hosted by the team of David Heil, Dave Huddleston, Actress and Voiceover artist, Eileen Galindo, Brian Hackney and SuChin Pak, now a frequent host and pop culture reporter for MTV. An occasional short feature appeared called "Science of the Rich and Famous" in which celebrities appeared to explain a science principle; as examples, rock star Ted Nugent explained guitar feedback, Olympic Gold Medalist skater Scott Hamilton demonstrated the angular momentum of a skater's spin, Let's Make a Deal host Monty Hall demonstrated the science of probability, and Betty White showed how cats purr.

Apple Pie is an American television sitcom that was broadcast on the ABC network from September 23, 1978 until September 30, 1978. It is based on the play Nourish the Beast, by Steve Tesich, who won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for 1979's Breaking Away. Apple Pie starred Rue McClanahan as lonely hairdresser Ginger-Nell Hollyhock, who lives in Kansas City, Missouri during the Depression year of 1933. "You can't pick your own relatives," goes the old saying, but that is exactly what Ginger-Nell does. Placing classified ads in the local newspapers, she recruits a con-man husband, "Fast Eddie" Murtaugh, played by Dabney Coleman; a tap-dancing daughter, Anna Marie Hollyhock, played by Caitlin O'Heaney; a son who wanted to fly like a bird, Junior Hollyhock, played by Derrel Maury; and a tottering old grandfather, Grandpa Hollyhock, played by Jack Gilford; all of whom come to live together—for the laughs. When the TV sitcom Maude ended in early 1978, producer Norman Lear created Apple Pie as a vehicle for Rue McClanahan, who had played Vivian Cavender Harmon on Maude. The show, however, was not well received and was canceled after only two episodes, though eight had been filmed under the direction of Peter Bonerz.
