This Week in Television History: July 2016 PART I

As always, the further we go back in Hollywood history,
the more that fact and legend become intertwined.
It's hard to say where the truth really lies.

July 4, 1976
The Bicentennial Minute on  was narrated by First Lady Betty Ford.

From July 4, 1976, here is some coverage of some Bicentennial events from ABC News and Harry Reasoner, beginning at 1 PM EST

This psychedelic cartoon was produced by the U.S. Government with taxpayer dollars in 1976 to mark two hundred years of independence.

Of course we cant forget "Fireworks" is a Schoolhouse Rock! segment, featuring a song of the same title written by Lynn Ahrens.

To quote the Bicentennial Minute, "And that's the way it was".

Stay Tuned
