NOTE (9-12-12) I'VE UPLOADED A MUCH CLEANER TRANSFER OF THIS VIDEO TO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P7_fE2... VIDEO STARTS AT 13:10

Chet Huntley and David Brinkley teamed in 1956 for NBC's 'Huntley-Brinkley Report,' the very first dual anchor national evening newscast. It dominated the ratings until the debut of 'The CBS Evening News With Walter Cronkite' in 1963. In this final broadcast, as Huntley retires, he and David say goodbye to each other for the last time. At the very same moment 'over on that other network,' CBS, Walter Cronkite was adding his own goodbyes to Huntley, saying that "a giant was leaving the industry." You can watch that clip at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNHLej...
For you technical geeks, this was recorded in the video tape room of WTVJ-TV in Miami, FL on the air date above on what was then called 'quad,' or 2" video-tape. Over the years, I dubbed it first to 3/4" tape, then beta, then DVC pro and finally to DVD.
