Nov. 18th, 2008 marked the 57th anniversary of the first
live simultaneous TV transmission from the East Coast (New York Harbor)
and the West Coast (San Francisco Bay), as reporters on both sides of the
North American continent gave live reports to Ed Murrow on the first episode
of the "See It Now" program. Ed Murrow was seated in the back of control room
of Studio 41 in front of a mock conrol panel.
Fred Friendly was the producer and Don Hewitt the director.
I was the audio man.
