I need help finding a television program. I believe it was like "In Search Of" which dealt with real life mysteries in a scientific format. It was a television show on time travel. The show was on years ago, when I was young. I am guessing between 1972 to 1989.

Here is the key: there was a photograph of the Gettysburg Address in the television program. The commentator noted that the child in the centre of the photo was a time traveller, but his identity would not be revealed. This was said as a statement of fact. The program could have been on TV only that one time, because of this statement.

I guess I would need a list of all kinds of television programs from that time period. Any help would be appreciated.

Why would that statement mean the show could only have been on once? – Daniel Roseman Oct 20 '13 at 18:53
What country & language? Was it aimed at adults or children? – Wikis Oct 20 '13 at 20:09
I'm guessing the program referred to this story? – Wikis Oct 20 '13 at 20:12
Closed the duplicate question, leaving this one open. Because one was migrated from SciFi, you may be editing two questions on Movies now. Please just edit this one. – iandotkelly Oct 21 '13 at 1:53

Perhaps an episode of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura titled Time Travel?

Ventura investigates rumors that the government has developed secret time travel technology beginning with the Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Project and that it has been used as a weapon to alter historical events. Later he meets Andrew D. Basiago, a man who claims that as a child, he was "chrononaut" working for his father at the Los Alamos National Laboratory on a DARPA experiment called "Project Pegasus" and was sent back in time to meet historical figures such as George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Sorry, the program aired from the late 1970's to the late 1980's. – D. S. Oct 22 '13 at 7:56
