    • This show was originally broadcast without commercials. It was so well received that it aired again on Christmas day 1960. Bernstein provided new introductions to replace the originals by Joseph Welch. Twelve year old Hayward Morse (son of actors Barry Morse and Sydney Sturgess) reading selections from St. Luke's Christmas story was another addition to the show. Bernstein also included a tribute to Joseph Welch, who had passed away October 6, 1960.
