Chicago Public Television calls it a night very early on Christmas Day 1978. The clip commences with the final couple of minutes of a muscal program Sing Ye Noel, immediately followed by the 1970s-era Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) animated ID. Following this is a PBS promo for New Year's At Pops, which is followed by a WTTW PSA featuring legendary talk-show host Phil Donahue promoting the Yule Connection. Next is the WTTW sign-off, delivered by announcer Marty Robinson, followed by a WTTW-produced SSB film featuring scenes of the city of Chicago.
