"Television came of age during the Eisenhower administration. Join us for the first-ever fully televised cabinet meeting and the first fully broadcast presidential press conference. Experience politics 1952-style as we air revealing excerpts from an hour-long "election-eve" broadcast originally produced for the Republican National Convention. It's a unique window into early political advertising and a Madison Avenue preview of things to come."

--Richard Norton Smith
