Walter Mackins.....Everything you said in your comment applies to me too....except I was 13 :)

Saw this when it originally aired on KPIX in 1962. (I was eleven-years old.) Still remains one of my favorite documentaries. That opening shot of the channel before the bridge was built was the first time I'd ever seen that view. And the song, "Bridge Buildin' Man"? I still catch myself humming it whenever I'm crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. Catchy little tune. Found this while surfing the web late one night. Bookmarked it. It's a keeper!
