David Atwood and Julia Child

 it was a great experience. I was very lucky. I was in the right place at the right time. Suddenly I was the director for the new series in color and I was on my way to France for seven weeks, and wow.

David Atwood

In 1965, David Atwood graduated from the University of Maine in Orono with a degree in history and government. But fate would send him off in a different direction. He had worked one summer at WCSH-TV and discovered that he loved working in television.

After graduation, David moved to Boston and got a job at the Public Television Station WGBH, which was the same station that aired the immensely popular cooking show The French Chef, with Julia Child.

In this episode of the Catching Your Memories podcast, David shares his memories of not only directing The French Chef in the studio in the early 70s but also going to France with Julia to film some on-location segments.
