A work-in-progress, this documentary tells the story of early television from the underrepresented local perspective, spotlighting broadcasting events in a city that was a leader in the industry during this important time. It celebrates the on-camera personalities who played major roles in creating the experience of growing up with television in the Midwestern town of Cincinnati, Ohio. It explores the experience of "local Live" and local fame. It reveals local ingenuity that had a national impact. It seeks to remind us of the "what if?" and "why not?" attitude that brought us to now ... and will continue to take us into the future.
