The Hamburger Abendblatt wrote on 20.01.1964: [...] it became obvious
that the head of the programme was missing the thread: unfortunately
there was no clear judgement of the experts about the equally
sensational and controversial efforts of the Göttingen physicist

Gong 6/1964 wrote in his review: "On Sunday afternoon exercises for the III. program will take place, which should serve the general education. [...] Thus Hermann Rockmann was able to bring Professors Oberth, Pascual Jordan and singers together in his teaching, which must be called a sensation. However, it did not come up for discussion [...]. Hermann Rockmann, not free of the manuscript, did nothing to make the program more lively: [...]. One remained objective, hard as a bone, dry. It is questionable whether this will win over the TVs for the III. program. What the gentlemen had to say is in their books. [...]
