Film Synopsis:

Beginning in the 1960s, Paulist Productions produced the Emmy award winning Insight series, a collection of 250 half-hour dramas illuminating the contemporary search for meaning, freedom and love. The series uses many different story telling forms – comedy, melodrama and fantasy – to explore in depth the moral dilemmas faced by men and women.

Award-winning religious program “Insight” aired from 1960 to 1984. The purpose of the series was to dramatize the deep ethical and spiritual conflicts of modern man in a way that suggests a humanistic solution…. Some subjects explored in the upcoming Insight series included dishonesty in marriage, college agnosticism, psychology of hate, guilt and death, automation, narcotics, spiritual isolation, racism, hypocrisy, morality of warfare, alcoholism, and community-police relations.

Father Ellwood E. Keiser, the producer-host, stated that the show was concerned “with the dignity of man in the modern world, caught between the confusing forces of good and evil, between strength and weakness.” The series’ aim was to create a “God-centered universe into which non-believing viewers will be invited to enter and look around.” Produced by Paulist Productions in California, with well-known actors who appeared regularly on the show and worked without pay.

Release Date: (DVD) TBA!

    Please release the entire Insight series in a modern format, DVD as soon as possible. I’m not getting any younger, and I’ve missed that show terribly. I can’t afford premium tv either, so DVD is the only way I’ll get to enjoy it again. I found it so uplifting and need it badly at times.

    Please put me on your news list so I’ll know at the earliest. Thanks.

    We will put you on our newsletter. 🙂

    Very haunting, powerful show. A ‘true’ religious or rather spiritual show which proves that God is manifested through our common, yet suppressed humanity. Especially relevant in these cynical times. I think that, although people are seduced by the usual Hollywood hype and glamour( themes of conquest, power) they’re more open to uplift/inspiration, especially if it’s communicated in a universalist, nonjudgemental, ‘everday’ way, which i vaguely remember these shows doing quite effectively.

    I would love to see Insight put on DVD! A superb show! I havent seen most of the episodes, so it would be fantastic to watch! Especially in chronological order. I didnt know the show started in 1960.

    I am also a great admirer of this program. It helped me to understand that God is within us ready to take shape and grow with our every act. Especially in those acts where we often stumble and fall as humans are apt to do. Please let me know when they are made available in DVD. This is the right time for their message to resonate again and not only with Catholics. Than you for making this a possibility.

    Please count me among the Insight fans who would love to see these episodes re-released on DVD. I haven’t seen this remarkable series on TV in almost 20 years, and I’ve had to settle for the occasional episode on YouTube. I t would be great to see them all again after all these years

    You can sign up for our newsletter so when it comes out you’ll know, otherwise you’ll need to check back every couple of months or so until there is at least a release date.

    Like almost everyone else here, I’d like to see these released on DVD. If not, maybe one of the retro channels (COZI, THIS, Antenna TV, or maybe TBN) could broadcast them. The series would be seen by a whole new group of people that have never heard of it. In the mid to late ’70’s and maybe into the early ’80’s I recall watching some of the color episodes made in the late ’60s and early ’70’s. Until coming to this site, I didn’t know they went back to 1960 and I don’t recall ever seeing any b&w episodes. I went looking for them on YouTube, but didn’t find much, except for the theme music. I assume that they aren’t posted either because of copyright restrictions, or more likely because nobody has been able to because they’re only on old and scarce VHS tapes. In our world of DVD’s and flash drives, very little on VHS, or the even older and more obsolete BETA format tapes may ever make it to the PC.

    Truly a wonderful show; none like it today. Please release as many episodes as possible on DVD. I will buy them all and in that way help to fund this cause.

    Wish they were available – maybe someday!

    I want to add my voice — this wonderful, unique series needs to seen again, I am not a churchgoer, but these shows — most of which I saw in my adolescence — helped me understand the daily spiritual struggle we all engage in, issues I still deal with, and did so in an entertaining way. The shows allowed room for questioning and weren’t judgemental, but helped lead you to a more spiritual path gently and through persuasion. I don’t see anything like it on today’s television.

    Additionally, the fine work of the writers and actors (most working for scale or for nothing) should not be hidden away and forgotten. The best episodes rate with “The Twilight Zone” and the best of the anthology series despite low budgets, and are worthy even as pure entertainment. It would be tragic for this series to be forgotten.

    I watched this program as a teenager and credit it with my becoming a Christian. I, too, miss this program terribly and I would love to buy it on DVD. I hope it becomes available for purchase soon.

    I would like to know if Insight is available on DVD and if so, where?

  22. Anthony says
    08 March 16, 8:04pm

    I’m going to join the chorus here and ask…nay, beg, that this wonderful series be put on DVD. It seems like such a terrible waste of a magnificent, incomparably acted, written and produced series such as Insight to only make it commercially available on a format that’s as outdated as the horse-drawn trolley. A new generation awaits its introduction to Insight, to be moved by it the way mine was, but that will never happen until it’s made available in a 21st century format. Please.

    Thank you.

    Please release this Entire series on DVD. Other shows have been released why not this one?

    18 May 16, 8:00pm

    In this desperate world we so need God. Please release this entire series to the public. I believe it is an obligation to share this gift God has given. Please don’t be like the man in the bible who buried his treasure I stead of investing it. So many are hungry on how to live as God wants and this series certainly brings It to light. ????

    What a wonderful show, please put it on DVD, Share it with the world. The world desperately needs to see this show!!!!!!
