From Jay Chichon

Hi Harry Charles....of course I remember you!
I am not sure of the name of Ed Murrow's make-up artist.
Does Francis ring a bell?
Speaking about Ed Murrow....By chance I did audio on the first "See It Now broadcast" (a historic event).
Its first episode, on November 18, 1951, opened with the first live simultaneous coast-to-coast TV transmission from both the East Coast (the Brooklyn Bridge and New York Harbor) and the West Coast (the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and San Francisco Bay), as reporters on both sides of the North American continent gave live reports to Murrow, who was sitting in the control room on CBS' Studio 41 with director Don Hewitt.

Best regards to all.....Jay Chichon
