Trivia

Per the title, "Hail to the Chief" is the official song that announces that the President of the United States has arrived. The song was originally known as "Lady of the Lake" and debuted in New York May 8, 1812. On July 4, 1828, the United States' Marine Band performed the song at a ceremony for the formal opening of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, which was attended by President John Quincy Adams. The song was first played to announce the arrival of the president at James K. Polk's inauguration on March 4, 1845. Today it is preceded by four ruffles and flourishes when played for the President.

MeTv version June 29th 2014
29 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Watching this episode tonite June 29th 2014.

When the film clip of the president & first lady was shown it was of John F Kennedy and Janckie Kennedy. So if the LBJ version still exists it might be only on video tapes of the post 1963 airings.

Also in this episode is a statement when Oakland is being considered for a transfer back to DC about taking care of "Caroline's Ponies" i wonder if that was edited out dubbed in the LBJ versions since his daughter's names were Lynda & Luci .

I also agree it was "odd" watching this knowing what was to come , but also the serious tone of the comments made by some of the federal officials in this episode and in a sly way showed how relations the USA has with some other nations wasn't all that perfect back then.
