I came across your website today after being referred to it by a post on the QuadList. I am currently a TD at WWJ-TV in Detroit and have always been interested in the old television musicals such as “Cinderella” from March 1957. I believe it was produced at CBS Color Studio 72 in New York and the credits list Lou Tedesco as the TD. Do you have any information on the technical history of this production?
