We see the NBC logo (with the 'N' and 11 feathered peacock) in the Washington offices in 1977 - that logo wasn't used until 1979. See more »

Lady in control room:
I haven't seen anything like her or that in my life. You talk about better living through chemistry.

Bland, soap-opera dramatisation of the rise and fall of America's first female TV news anchor. With a tighter script and direction - and a better cast - this might have passed muster, but the flimsy story really wasn't worth the effort. A good documentary on the subject might have been the best way to go. Typically strong production values in the TV movie conveyor-belt manner, but it's all as superficial as old fluff, and just as engaging.
