In talking about NBC we should note that last week was the 40th
anniversary of Heidi which was NBC's BOC darkest moment.
To show how things have changed..back in 1968 there was only one
constant line between New York and Burbank and when they wanted to
change direction ATT Long Lines had to do it in Iowa. Burbank had
control of the game from Oakland but the work order for ATT was to
switch back to NYC BOC at 6:59:40 EST.
That was before my time. After that happened there was red phone in BOC
designated the Heidi phone as a hot line so that wouldn't happen again.
