Stay Tuned (over crawl)
NBC Production Tag:
Off Air: Time Stamp
Notes: AW aired via live broadcast from May 4, 1964 - May 23, 1967. Therefore, timing was essential and necessary dialogue cuts were made to ensure that the show ran within its alloted time period. Many pages within the body of the scripts have handwritten time designations, which supplemented the "Show Routine Page."
Example (from September 1966)
Production Company: Young & Rubicam, Inc.
Date: Thursday, September 15th
Body: "THE BOSTON HERALD SAYS 'THE HERO' IS ONE OF THE FUNNIEST TELEVISION SHOWS OF THE NEW SEASON. WHY NOT JOIN 'THE HERO' AND HIS COMIC ESCAPADES TONIGHT AT 9:30...8:30, CENTRAL TIME...ON THE FULL COLOR NETWORK....N.B.C."
"AND NOW STAY TUNED FOR 'YOU DON'T SAY.'"
Notes: These announcement encompassed not only television promotions, but special programming such as news coverage on political events and the space program. The end of scripts included pages for Film Routines and Time Sheets. These helped the crew determine when full-length crawls could be utilized when, in some cases, the program was short by a certain amount of time.
