Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)


Recommended Posts

Here's the KPIX link.




Clip is from about May 1988...shortly after the set/open were introduced. I think a bit later they introduced some better choreographed bay area visuals. Vaguely remember the altamont windmills and some ferry shots.

Some more vintage KPIX from the passing of anchor Doug Murphy. If you fast forward to about 3:45 in the first clips you'll start to see some memories of Doug Murphy with some opens, views of the sets, graphics, etc.
