The Mancini Generation (musical variety)

    [Henry Mancini was perhaps the best-known film/TV composer
     of the decade of the 1960s because of his crossover from 
     the TV scores he wrote for "Peter Gunn" and "Mr. Lucky" 
     having popular success on record charts, and his subsequent 
     movie scores for "The Pink Panther", "Charade" and others;

     This effort was well intentioned, but by the time Henry 
     Mancini was asked to host this series featuring his
     orchestra, over a dozen years had past since he was at
     the peak of his fame with the "younger generation", and
     the "Rock revolution" of the late-1960s had taken place; 
     by the time this series appeared, the generation of
     "flower children" coming up in the early 1970s embraced
     heavy metal, singer/songwriters and the beginnings of
     disco, so the series wasn't to catch on...]
