Milk, this stuff all comes from my tape archives. I have the 7&4 and the 9&10(&13) 50th Anniversary specials on hand. I wish the station I've been associated with, WFRV, did a 50th special, but...that would begin with WNAM-TV going dark and the failure of many UHF stations in the 1950s. Anyhow, PM me if you'd like to arrange a viewing.
Found this thread again...

WC8KCY: Can you upload the 9&10 special to Youtube?

It's on my to-do list. With winter on the way, I'll have a bit more time to digitize source material. When it goes up, it should be on this YouTube channel:

I pulled the 9&10(&13) 50th Anniversary tape and it's in process right now. Should be up in a day or two.

The YouTube channel is hosted by fellow forum member FMDXGuy5678...I can't begin to express my great appreciation for his efforts in the archiving and sharing of long-unseen Michigan television broadcasts.

I expect that he'll have part 2 up very soon.

Yes, commercial broadcasting is about the here and now--helping our advertisers meet their present and future goals while serving the viewing and listening needs of our audiences. That said, it's also an art form, and thus it's important, instructive, and fun to study footage from days gone by.

I've also got the 7&4 50th Anniversary special. Stay tuned...

First of all, thank you for the shoutout! I greatly appreciate it, and I'm looking forward to what the future may bring for my channel. It's been a very interesting journey through time with each tape.

As for the 7&4 50th, it's already been uploaded... by a former Midwestern Broadcasting employee who also lurks the forums.

Also, both parts of the 9&10 50th are on YouTube now.

Thanks for uploading! Although I'm surprised it was only a half-hour long.

Considering all the generic CBS footage at the beginning of the program--along with all the Christmas music at the end--it seems they had to stretch what they had to work with to fill the 22 1/2 minute runtime (sans commercials).

Still, it is a very decent 50th anniversary program. They covered all the essentials, and kept it fun.

Does anyone know what the news package is used on the Newswatch 7&4 1991 clip?
