Here's the opening moments of The Best of CBS presentation of the 1975 made-for-TV movie "The Night That Panicked America" on WBBM Channel 2. Includes:

Station ID slide (seen briefly)

Show opening (slightly cut-off at the beginning?) with clip excerpts from upcoming film (opening voiceover by Jerry Harper) (music is "Heavy Action" by legendary production music composer Johnny Pearson - same music was used as the theme for Monday Night Football for many years)
I remember this opening so well...been looking for it for quite a while now. :-)

Commercial: Downy Fabric Softener - for freshening and softening clothes while removing static cling - "If It Smells April Fresh, It's Gotta Be Downy!"

Commercial: Wheatsworth Stone Ground Crackers from Nabisco - with a touch of sesame - can go with soup, salad or cheese

Start of movie opening titles with pertinent disclaimer (and voiceover) at beginning

Font Notes: Station ID slide set in ITC Avant Garde Bold, The Best of CBS title typeset in Compacta Bold.
