#8491: MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE: 46TH ANNUAL, THE
1972-11-23, NBC, 120 min.
John Raitt, Lorne Greene, Donna Fargo, Betty White, Bill Anderson, Joe Gargiola, Dance Theater of Harlem, Santa Claus, Walt Disney Float, West Point Glee Club, Phil Gries

The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, one of the world's largest parades, is presented by the U.S. based department store chain Macy's. 

The parade started in 1924, tying it for the second-oldest Thanksgiving parade in the United States with America's Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit (both parades being four years younger than Philadelphia's Thanksgiving Day Parade). 

The two-hour parade is held in Manhattan from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on Thanksgiving Day, and has been televised nationally on NBC since 1952. Employees at Macy's department stores have the option of marching in the parade

The 46th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade telecast live from New York City.

Hosts; Lorne Green and Betty White who have co-hosted The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade from 1963-1972.

Scheduled to be in the parade and perform are Bill Anderson, The Dance Theater of Harlem, The World of Walt Disney, Donna Fargo, Jody Miller, John Raitt, Rockettes, West Point Glee Club. 

Joe Garagiola opens the broadcast congratulating Lorne Green and Betty White on their tenth consecutive appearance co-hosting the parade. Also noted that this telecast marks the 25th time, since 1945, that NBC Television has broadcast the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, either locally or nationally. From 1942 to 1944 the Parade was cancelled during World War 2. 

It should come as no surprise that many of the telecasts from the 1950s thru the early 1970's are lost, and only one pre-1980 parade exists in full. Network broadcast Kinescopes and Video Tapes were either discarded, wiped, or never recorded.  Video recording software (3/4" U-Matic) was first released to the Public at great cost in 1971, and the Betamax (1975) and JVC VHS (1976, released in the USA in 1977) gave the public a means to record television broadcasts off the air in their own homes, but to date it seems nobody at home elected to record a complete parade. 

Certain footage from old telecasts have been shown in anniversary specials, confirming that some still exist. Bootleg copies circa 1980 to the present have been posted on You Tube...most all of which playback poorly until the 2000's. 

During the first television years, the parade went through changes. Many of the parade's most iconic balloons were introduced in this period, such as Popeye, Bullwinkle, the Happy Dragon, Underdog, Smokey Bear, Linus the Lionhearted, Sinclair's Dino, and the first two Snoopy balloons. The toy float concept was introduced in the 1960s, with a turkey-shaped one, introduced in 1973, eventually becoming parade mascot Tom Turkey.

A few notable lost parades include the 1956 parade (when Mighty Mouse crashed at Herald Square), 1965 (the debut of Underdog), and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to bad weather). 


Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade 
(Known Video & Audio extant NBC broadcasts of parades, 1953-1980)

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual event held in New York City every Thanksgiving Day. The Parade was founded in 1924 as a Christmas pageant by Macy's immigrant employees who wanted to celebrate the holiday, akin to parades held for special occasions in Europe. The Parade is perhaps best known for its iconic helium balloons that depict characters from pop culture such as cartoon characters, brand mascots, and original Macy's characters.

History
 |
Since 1953, NBC has held the telecast rights to the Parade prior to this, CBS broadcasted the Parade. NBC's broadcast of the Parade traditionally lasts three hours, with the first hour dedicated to performances by Broadway musicals and the Parade progressing to the finish line. The other two hours consist of the Parade itself, which features giant balloons, floats, cultural performances, celebrity appearances, and musical/talent ensembles. The Parade ends with Santa Claus riding on his own float, signaling the unofficial arrival of the holiday season.
Hosts of the NBC telecast have included such personalities as Lorne Greene, Betty White (from 1963 to 1972), Kent McCord, Martin Milner (1973), Ed McMahon (from 1974 to 1981), Helen Reddy (1975), Bryant Gumbel (from 1977 to 1980 and 1982 to 1984).
Availability
 |
Out of the 28 Parade broadcasts that aired on NBC between 1953 and 1980, only three of them have surfaced in full. Video recording equipment was not readily available to the general public until 1971, meaning the 1953-1970 broadcasts have a lower chance of being found than the 1971-1980 broadcasts. Clips from various pre-1980 telecasts have been used in Parade anniversary specials produced by NBC, meaning at least parts of the broadcasts remain in the NBC archives.

Notably lost parades include the 1956 Parade (when all balloons succumbed to blustery winds, with Mighty Mouse crashing in front of NBC cameras), 1960 (the debut of the Happy Dragon, Macy's longest-running singular balloon to date) and 1971 (when all the balloons had to be removed due to heavy winds and rain).

NOTE:

It is interesting that as late as the 1980's very well produced and important television SPEICALS are considered not extant to todays audiences...its original 2" Quad master tapes erased to be used for other programming. By 1981 this practiced had diminished greatly, especially those production broadcasts on CBS Television. But still there are "victims" of such practices as represented by this first and only tribute to THE GRAMMY HALL OF FAME which aired as a special one time presentation on CBS on May 18, 1981.

Archival Television Audio, Inc. has had this broadcasts in its inventory for many years, but never played back until a client requested it. Sadly, the audio tape had its own problem issues and at first it appeared that it could not be salvaged at all. 
This tape was a victim of a condition detailed below. it was in very severe condition with 30% of its oxide layer flake off.  However, by "baking" the tape for 13 hours I, Phil Gries, owner of ATA, was able to at least get a transcription discernable dub of this broadcast. It took a number of passes...stop and go...cleaning the tape recorder heads numerous times.  

The sound rendition of this baked tape has sections that are very good, sections that have issues with drop outs, some occasional drops in audio, occasional echo effects of audio, etc. I was able to also use Q tips with Isopropyl alcohol in addition to 
keep audible tonality  as much as possible, keeping content of  this broadcast as much possible, retaining 98% of this broadcast.

The end result is that one can listen to this "lost" broadcast in its entirety with enjoyment realizing its limitations.

STICKY-SHED  SYNDROME  is a condition created by the deterioration of the binders in a magnetic tape, which hold the ferric oxide magnetizable coating to its plastic carrier, or which hold the thinner back-coating on the outside of the tape. This deterioration renders the tape unusable. Some kinds of binder are known to break down over time, due to the absorption of moisture (hydrolysis).

The symptoms of this breakdown can be immediately obvious even when rewinding the tape: tearing sounds and sluggish behavior. If a tape with sticky-shed syndrome is played, the reels will make screeching or squeaking sounds, and the tape will leave dusty, rusty particles on the guides and heads. In some cases, the symptoms are more subtle, causing intermittent dropouts.

This television audio air check seems to be the only existing broadcast record, in this less than pristine playback condition, of this iconic broadcast, not existing in any known archive museum, CBS archives or in any private collection.
