YouTube original programming: Inside the World's Largest Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy

San Diego, CA
Post #: 54
More Episodes online this week!

"It Came from Riverside: Inside the World's Largest Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy," takes viewers inside UC Riverside's Eaton Collection, a virtual temple of everything science fiction.

The three-part series reveals some of the archive's most treasured possessions, illuminates the genre's evolution in popular culture, and demonstrates its growing acceptance within literary and academic circles. Two episodes are now available at UCTV Prime's YouTube channel and on the series website. You can also find bonus content, such as "10 Notable Fanzines at the Eaton Collection," on the UCTV Blog. The third installment premieres July 13, with additional episodes later this summer.­

"It Came from Riverside," an Original Series from UCTV Prime
Ep. 1: Inside the World's Largest Collection of Science Fiction and Fantasy" Venture inside UC Riverside's Eaton Collection for a peek at some of its science fiction and fantasy treasures - including fanzines, manuscripts, first editions, posters and more --and an assessment of the collection's significance within popular culture and academia.­

"Ep. 2: The Evolution of Science Fiction"
The expansive Eaton Collection reflects the history and evolution of science fiction, with particular emphasis on its shift from hopeful, utopian themes that demonstrate society's inherent faith in technology, to a bleaker, dystopian view in the wake of Word War II and the dawn of the Atomic Age.­

"Ep. 3: Science Fiction Goes to School" (Coming July 13, watch the trailer at the link!) It wasn't very long ago that science fiction literature was dismissed as frivolous. This episode outlines the growing respectability of SF and fantasy, their emergence as literature worthy of preservation and study, and the many ways in which the Eaton Collection services this growing scholarly demand.­
