Looking Back:June 1961

TV Guide Ad for an early News Special on South Vietnam shown on KYW-TV 3-This was part of a monthly Internationally produced series called "Intertel"..Presumably on the Westinghouse stations, though it may have been shown in other countries as well. This was an example of Westinghouse airing interesting, thought provoking shows and specials in Prime Time. Pre-empted "National Velvet" and "Tab Hunter"
Of course, history showed that South Vietnam did not survive..
