  • Trivia

    • Because the technical strike that crippled last week's broadcast had not been resolved before going to air, a number of technical glitches occur during this broadcast: there are a few bad camera switches in "Purino Rat Chow"; the title screen appears right after the videotaped footage of the skiiers wiping out in "The Claudine Longet Invitational", and the title screen for "Great Moments In History" flickers onscreen before the text epilogue appears. Additionally, the camera and lighting work, especially during the music performances, still looks unpolished: shot composition is awkward and the lights dim and then overbrighten at one point during Phoebe Snow's second number.
