This clip of Bluefield's longtime NBC affiliate Channel 6 was among many the Webmaster received and recorded from his home in Winston-Salem NC in the summer of 1989. It commences with NBC program bumpers for Friday Night Videos (with guest Paula Abdul) and Saturday Night Live (with guest Steve Martin). The sign-off immediately follows these, which features video of the two transmitters WVVA was using at the time (the've both no doubt have since been retired with the end of analog TV in 2009). The Harris TV20-L was the main transmitter, installed only a year-and-a-half before this clip was recorded. The RCA TT10-AL transmitter was no doubt the one used by Channel 6 when it first signed on as WHIS-TV in 1955. The SSB video is of unknown origin, featuring a mixed chorus, scenes of nature, and fireworks over the Statue of Liberty for the finale. There's several seconds of a WVVA-TV color test pattern at the end.
