TK-41's at NBC Color City
Burbank, CA -1957

This kinescope recording was made in September 1957 before video tape recording was in common use. This show is NBC's weekly series "Wide Wide World," an in-depth soft-news program with innovative (at the time) live remote segments from around the nation and the world. The program was hosted by Dave Garroway.

The subject of this "Wide Wide World" broadcast was television production. Surprisingly, CBS and ABC are also featured in the episode. This segment switches to NBC's Color City studios in Burbank, California to see a rehearsal of NBC's daily afternoon series "Matinee Theatre," a live color broadcast of one hour plays.
