Here is Commercial Break #4 during The Day After on WLS Channel 7 - an ABC Theater telemovie about the effects of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States. No sponsor wanted to buy ad time after the bombs were dropped, so this was the last break until the end of the movie. A full hour and 19 minutes with no commercial breaks or interruptions of any kind! Includes:

Commodore Computers - Zortek

Extra Strength Dexatrim

Dollar Rent-a-Car (again)

Hot Tracks - from K-Tel records

Promo for ABC News Viewpoint special on The Day After with Ted Koppel, immediately following the movie
