It was filmed on May 22nd, 1958 in the WRC-TV studios in Washington (the local NBC affiliate). The video starts off in black and white while Eisenhower’s motorcade approaches the studios, but then transitions to color for the first time when Robert Sarnoff, president of NBC, flips the switch in the middle of the broadcast.
