Assignment Four - No Deposit, No Return

About This Item

A KRON-TV Assignment Four special report from 1965 about the environmental impact of waste disposal in the Bay Area, written and produced by Bob Anderson, as part of 65 titles in their Biography series. Includes an interview with Mayor of Brisbane (San Mateo County) Jess Salmon who states he'd rather have the Bay filled with garbage which yields city revenue than "clean dirt" from San Bruno mountain. Also features many views of garbage dumps, a tickertape parade, household garbage disposal and polluted shoreline areas. Opens with a brief introduction by KRON-TV's Vice President and GM Harold P. See, who explains: "We felt the historical and educational value of these films should not be lost to those individuals or groups whose daily schedule did not permit them to witness the original broadcast." This film was directed by Al Scollay and narrated by Art Brown.

This 16mm film print was re-scanned in 4K (4096 x 2970) using a Lasergraphics ScanStation film scanner, in September 2022.
