I found this most interesting. I had heard that

Richard Sloan

I’d like to know if “The Day Lincoln Was Shot” —a CBS show broadcast live from CA at 6 pm in 1956 — was able to be simultaeneously seen in NY (where it was 9 pm.) A kine of the show was made. Why? Was CBS thinking that there might be requests from stations to re-run it? I believe it was kinescoped for other reasons. One possible reason — the author of the book from which the tv adaptation was made (Jim Bishop)?knew he couldn’t catch it live and askedCBS to kinescope it so that he could watch it when he made a later trip to ny.
