The current promos for the new film "Good Night and Good Luck" reminded me of a historic "See It Now" broadcast on Nov. 18, 1951 that I took part in. It was the first live coast to coast television transmission. Ed Murrow showed a split screen of live shots of the Brooklyn Bridge and the San Francisco Bay Brdge. The program originated from control room 41 in the Grand Central Building. I was doing audio. It is hard to realize that was 54 years ago.
