Doubt that this inquiry will bear fruit, but check out this series of specials aired between 1954 and 55 on CBS entitled "The Best of Broadway."


These were color broadcasts and done live. As they were made before the advent of videotape I suspect they won't have survived, but I'm curious as to whether any are known extant as black and white kinescopes. These programs used original cast members; for example, "Panama Hattie" featured Ethel Merman. And I'm also curious how they got them out to the West Coast in prime time in color (or if they did so at all).
