Archive find: Johnny Carson
In the jumble of ETs and kines that were returned to AFRTS. Some previously unknown early clips. Apparently 5 minute filler programs from kinescope. Somewhere there's a storage facility that must look a lot like the end of Raiders Of The Lost Ark.
Due to the expense of preserving videotape, NBC saved next to nothing prior to 1972.
