Memory being the mind's dark mansion, I can't be certain this actually happened, but I think it did. In 1973 Rod Serling, then at the height of his Twilight Zone fame and a favourite subject of voice imitators everywhere, narrated a film called In Search of Ancient Astronauts. Based on the German documentary Chariots of the Gods (1970), Serling's film was widely screened in schools on 16 mm prints.
