I've been collecting election night and political news coverage for several years. I have coverage from the following Presidential election nights: 1952 (CBS) , 1960 (NBC), 1968 (ALL), 1972 (CBS, ABC) , 1976 (CBS), 1980 (ABC), 1984 (NBC, CNN), 1988 (ALL), 1992 (Clips from ALL and ABC), 2000 (ABC, CNN), 2004 (CBS, ABC), 2008 (CNN, CBS), 2012 (MSNBC)

For the Midterm election nights, I have: 1978 (NBC), 1982 (NBC), 1986 (ABC/CNN I think), 1990 (CBS) 2006 (CBS/CNN)

I also have coverage of major events such as both Kennedy assassinations, Nixon resignation, inaugurations, etc.

What is the rarest coverage anyone has?

I would watch the 2004 coverage, especially the moment of the call of the election for Bush.

Unfortunately, my 2004 coverage doesn't include that morning. My CBS coverage is only an hour or so from the earlier part of the coverage. The quality of the tape is scratchy too....I lived in the country at the time, before the digital transition. lol  My ABC coverage ends in the early morning hours, and the quality is much better, as I traded from another collector, but still ends well before the projection of Bush's win. The very end of the DVD has a brief snippet from WGN-Chicago, which recaps Bush's win, then there is FOX News coverage of Bush and Kerry's victory concession speeches.

I do remember watching the Bush victory projection on TV at the college I was attending at the time. They had a special college based MTV channel that carried CBS news breaks, and they carried the CBS News special report with breaking the news that Bush had won Ohio and the election. I was not a happy camper....lol

I forgot about this thread!

But I cannot for whatever reason find ANYTHING from 1964, or 1956 for that matter. The only thing I know for sure was that there is a post election special by CBS out on the circuit but what's the point in that? No thanks.

I seen maybe about 30 seconds worth of ABC's 1964 coverage, it looked pretty good for it's age and for ABC in those days. But that's about it.

I need to get into uploading again!

I never saw much coverage from 1952, 1956 or 1964 either. I guess over time, the TV networks either destroyed their kinescopes of 1952 and 1956 election returns or reused the video tapes that were used to record the 1964 election coverage. On a side note, I saw a small portion of the 1948 election coverage from NBC on Youtube recently (NBC and possibly CBS also televised coverage of the 1940 and 1944 election returns, but no footage is known to exist due to the fact that the kinescope process to record TV programming was not introduced until the Fall of 1947).

Term limits is used by those, who are bitter because they can't beat someone at the ballot box.

Like I said 1960 was a f***ing crazy election year. It's like everyone woke up and wondered "who the hell should I vote for?"
