aired in late 2008 on The Inland Empire's PBS channel

"The Man in the Funny Suit" aired this Fall on Riverside-San Bernadino's PBS channel 24's excellent series "I Remember Television" hosted by Ed Rothhaar. Although this series has aired for over 20 years, I only became aware of it when DirecTV added channel 24 to its Los Angeles local channel coverage.

I knew the story about the Wynn's and Requiem for many years, but had no idea that "The Man in the Funny Suit" existed until I stumbled upon its recent broadcast. I have now added it to my AppleTV collection, along with a recent eBay purchase of the LaserDisc of Requiem from the 1981 Sonny Fox PBS package: "The Golden Age of Television" with its terrific introduction of interview with the principals hosted by Jack Klugman.
