preserving knowledge show

Hi folks -

I got a question from a Center for the Study of Science Fiction reader, and it got me curious. Sounds like a neat show. Any ideas what it is?

"I wonder if you could give me some guidance on how to trace or discover the identity of an excellent science fiction movie (or TV drama) that I remember from the 1960's. It concerned a very long journey to a distant earth-like planet, to found a new colony. The problem explored was how to preserve scientific knowledge down many generations and prevent the growth of superstitions, by the time the descendents arrived at the destination."

Any ideas?
