The Pilot was partially filmed in the California statehouse. The first day of shooting was November 22, 1963. Richard Crenna remembered being told in the middle of filming that John Kennedy had just been shot in Dallas. See more »
Democracy is a very bad form of government. But I ask you never to forget. All the others are so much worse.

Like gmr-4, I too remember "Slattery's People." Being interested in politics, it was, and still is, one of my favorite television shows. I am glad to know at least one other person remembers it.
I recall one show in particular. It involved a person who wanted to build a house in a style which violated local design restrictions or what his neighbors wanted. It was a battle between an individual's right to build the house he wanted and government rules and regulations/neighbors. While I do not remember how the show turned out (though I think the individual was able to build what he wanted), the memory of that show has made me skeptical of unnecessary rules on house design, etc.
I doubt there is any way of getting any copies of old shows, but it there is, I would love to know about it.
