My name is Jeff Berkwits, and I am a journalist researching an article on the Saturday morning TV program "Rod Brown of the Rocket Rangers." This show was on CBS for one year, from April 1953 through May 1954, and starred Cliff Robertson. It was written and directed by George Gould, who, as I understand it, came from an engineering background (and earlier had worked on the show"Tom Corbett, Space Cadet"). Unfortunately, no kinescopes of "Rod Brown" are known to exist, and information on the show is rather sketchy. I was curious to know if you might be able to help me get in touch with any retired CBS personnel who may recall working on the program. I have already interviewed a few actors who appeared on the show (including Robertson), but have not been able to uncover anyone who has any real behind-the-scenes experiences or memories. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer, and I look forward to (hopefully) hearing from you soon. All the best,

Jeff Berkwits
