Abstract:

"Channel 5 celebrates a half-century of broadcasting. The clip-filled special mingles news events of the last five decades with nostalgic reminiscences and clips of early TV programs. Among the highlights are scenes of a 1952 atomic-bomb test; the 1960 Bel Air fires; the 1965 Watts riots; the 1991 beating of motorist Rodney King; and the 1994 Malibu fires. Lighter moments include an interview with Phil Hartman, who says children's host Skipper Frank was the inspiration for his Captain Karl character on Pee-wee's Playhouse; and clips of Steve Allen's late-night show, which has the comedian using himself as a tea bag to make iced tea years before David Letterman's antics"--TV guide.
