Scanned PDF copy of a letter written by KQED's Program Manager Johnathan C. Rice to NET's Director of TV Programming Donley F. Feddersen, dated April 7th 1961. In the letter Rice explains to Fedderson that they had to be "pretty firm" to cut the running time of The Rejected documentary film from it's original 120 minutes down to 90 minutes. He also goes into some detail about the program's budget. It should be noted that The Rejected was first broadcast on September 11th 1961 and was 59 minutes long.
