MUSEUM OF TELEVISION & RADIO'S 10TH ANNUAL TELEVISION FESTIVAL IN LOS ANGELES, THE: ST. ELSEWHERE {LONG VERSION} {TAPE 1 OF 2}

Summary

Tape one of two. One in a series of evenings and special screenings presented as part of The Museum of Television & Radio's 10th Annual Television Festival in Los Angeles. Presented with, and held at, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the festival celebrates the excellence and diversity of American television and is dedicated to television's creative community. This seminar honors "St. Elsewhere," a medical drama set in St. Eligius hospital in Boston. Robert M. Batscha, president of The Museum of Television & Radio, moderates. First, Batscha talks briefly about the legacy of "St. Elsewhere," and then he introduces the panel, all associates of the program: writer/producer Tom Fontana; writer John Masius; Jeff Sagansky, senior vice president for series programming at NBC from 1982 to 1985; producer Abby Singer; writer/producer John Tinker; supervising producer and writer Mark Tinker; cast members Bonnie Bartlett, Ed Begley, Jr., Ellen Bry, William Daniels, Ed Flanders, Stephen Furst, Eric Laneuville, Sagan Lewis, Howie Mandel, Norman Lloyd, David Morse, France Nuyen, Cindy Pickett, Christina Pickles, Jennifer Savidge; and producer, writer, and director Bruce Paltrow. Paltrow introduces a screening, which includes four clips from different "St. Elsewhere" episodes, along with one complete episode, titled "Murder, She Rote." After the screening, the seminar is opened to questions from the audience. While responding, the panelists discuss the following topics, among others: episodes or particular moments that they remember from the series; the quality of the program; religious content in the program; and a legal tangle that occurred over copyright issues. Continues with T:29117.

(This tape includes the "St. Elsewhere" episode "Murder, She Rote," which is part of the Museum's collection and may also be viewed separately. See T:28204 for a summary.)
