This link is broken, either the page no longer exists or there is some other issue like a typo.
. However Air Power never achieved the ratings the Victory At Sea did.
It was a good show but didn't have the Richard Rodgers score, the writing & narration that either Victory At Sea or The Valiant Years had,imo.

The Richard Rogers score was pure genius.
Not to be too technical but the original thread has the title of :"Favorite 1950's TV Shows"
The Valiant Years was not from the 1950's. It was a TV series 1960-1963.

Us kids used to have to go to bed on Sunday evening while the Lawerence Welk show was on. My Dad, (USN WWII) used to let me get back up and watch it with him right after the Welk show was done.
