My understanding is that Westinghouse at the very last minute
constructed a temporary TV studio at the Bradford Hotel as they feared
WNAC would get on the air first.

Donna does the first film of the leaders of the day welcoming WBZ-TV
exist? I have read that it included the Governor, Mayor, Archbishop
Cushing and others.

I believe the film included a welcome from a Jewish leader who died a
couple of hours before it was shown.
