Here's the full segment found on a tape from KWHY Channel 22 in Los Angeles, featuring the end of the movie "The Hills Have Eyes" on SelecTV followed by a promo for the movie "Blow-Up" and a station sign-off.
Not sure when this aired exactly - can anyone date it definitively?
Guess which movie I put in my Netflix queue after watching this. :-P Comment posted by Smctopia on Monday, October 4th 2010 at 8:30pm.
"Blow Up" is a good movie. I recorded this off of The Movie Channel back in 1989. Comment posted by Betamax75 on Monday, October 4th 2010 at 10:15pm.
I just watched "Blow-Up". It was a great film and terrific period piece. It lends itself to several good double features with films such as "The Conversation" (suspenseful films that deal with how we perceive things), "The Knack...and How to Get It" (Swingin', Mod London!) or Smashing Time" (Two films, two different Redgraves!)

I must admit, those are the most unusual color bars I've ever seen. Of course, I haven't seen any color bars since WPWR took over channel 50 back in 1987. Comment posted by OldTVNut on Friday, August 10th 2012 at 1:49pm.
That was an 11-step 180-degree burst pattern. Comment posted by W.B. on Saturday, August 11th 2012 at 9:38am.
Not to be confused with a 12-step program. Comment posted by T.K. on Saturday, August 11th 2012 at 2:29pm.
Just found out today that Blow-Up will air on TCM late Saturday June 21/early Sunday June 22 at midnight ET (11 pm CT).

Worth seeing just for the rare footage of The Yardbirds when both Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page were in the band...the song Stroll On is a rework of Train Kept A Rollin. Comment posted by Jack Demus on Friday, May 2nd 2014 at 4:05am.
Reminder for those who have Turner Classic: Blow-Up airs late Saturday night/early Sunday morning at midnight ET/11 pm CT. Comment posted by VintageCanada on Friday, June 20th 2014 at 6:17pm.
Ok, who here watched Blow-Up for the first time this weekend when Turner aired it? Did you like it? :-) Comment posted by Smctopia on Monday, June 23rd 2014 at 8:10pm.
I have it recorded and will find some time to watch it. Comment posted by VintageCanada on Wednesday, June 25th 2014 at 2:10pm.
Just got one Sarah Miles film in the books. It isn't Blow-Up yet, but I still have the DVD. (The film I did complete tonight features brief appearances by James Stewart.) Comment posted by VintageCanada on Sunday, August 24th 2014 at 9:25pm.
I got Blow-Up watched last Thursday. Great film. David Hemmings was outstanding, as was Vanessa Redgrave and Sarah Miles, and pretty much the entire cast. A very artful masterpiece.
And for the record, the other Sarah Miles movie I watched earlier this summer was the 1978 version of the Big Sleep with Robert Mitchum and James Stewart.
Oh, I do have The Night of the Hunter from 1955 on DVD starring Mitchum and Lillian Gish, but have yet to watch it. Comment posted by VintageCanada on Wednesday, September 10th 2014 at 5:51pm.

I actually lived at 4715 Boonsboro Road Boonsboro Village Apartments. Just about everyone in Lynchburg knew that. Glad it wasn't Chicago!
I'm the voiceover in the news preview (voiceover by ??) with teases and opening titles (without theme music - imagine that!), with wide shot of news set (voiceover by ??).
In 1977, there were only 6 members of the news staff... News Director/Anchor - Stan Jayson, Weather - Charles Middleton, Sports - John Buren, Reporters - Jeff Taylor & Jennifer Smith and a Photographer.
This is scary. 1985, the last throes of the Cold War. MX and Pershing II missiles. Our launch sites in WEST GERMANY. Before perestroika and glasnost. If you want to get really scared watch "Threads." Better yet, don't watch "Threads."
Detroit4Chicago - Thanks for the input. I defer to your expertise. It would be awesome (awesomely frightening?) to hear one from a local Chicago station that actually mentioned an "Attack Warning". But I guess this might be the closest we can get to that right now. :-)
I also obtained the EBS Cart #3 from the same batch - I will post it eventually. It's not as exciting as this one and if I recall correctly is an "All Clear" or cancellation of the alert or something. Same graphics and same announcer though. (Rick Garofalo has no idea what became of the EBS Cart #1, by the way) :-)
Subcarrier - Thanks for the story. Scary stuff! :-)
I believe this is not a RED CARD EAN (although judging by the label on the cart via Facebook, it does seen that way.)
I believe that this here was a standby script that was adopted by the FCC around 1972 when the Commission had changed some of the EBS/EAN procedures a year after the disastrous "wrong tape" incident at NORAD.
This also included the elimination of the EAN Message #1 ("White Card") and EAN Message #2 ("Red Card/Attack Warning") alert scripts. After the changes were made, you did not know what the heck was going on.
I think in this case, EBS #1 was the initial interruption announcement, use of the 22.5 second two-tone attention signal then the body announcement of the EAN. This clip from the cart, being marked EBS #2, may have been used for standby purposes when no Presidental "or his representative" address to the nation was available and everyone in the country was biting their nails and fidgeting.
My guess is that after 1981, the FCC (during the Reagan administration) and/or FEMA had given the "green light" for radio and TV stations to stay on the air and rebroadcast WGN Radio's EBS programming during an EAN request. I believe in turn, WGN would rebroadcast WLS (the EBS PEP; dunno..)
Before this, only key EBS radio stations (WGN and/or WLS) whom were allowed to stay on the air during an EAN would have been the only one(s) airing this script; everyone else would have been off the air after being ordered to cease broadcasting and to wait for the Emergency Action Termination to be given.
BTW (and on the same topic,) I'd like to know if anyone who worked at channel 5 have any knowledge if WMAQ-TV was a "Non-EBS" station during an EAN. (???)

I have a cart that was also used for the EBS. It was taken out of service when the EAS replaced it. It's labeled "National Emergency" and has a black plastic cover with diagonal stripes over the business end so it didn't get put on the air accidentally. The announce is similar to the clip- and it is chilling to hear. I played it on the prelisten bus on the MC switcher we were using at the time (CDL 990) which was probably a bit dangerous! After I heard it I threw it back in the rack as quick as I could.
