Elvis said we go out on worldwide television-using satellite linkups- so the spirit of it was worldwide.
I think I said once before if there had been a way to broadcast to the world "all in their individual prime time slots" it would have been done that way. But they wanted prime exposure in of each time zone around the world.
I can tell you I remember January 14 1973-if I would have had to stay up till midnight to watch it live I would have-If I would have had to get up at 6am to see it live I would have. Name a time-I would have made sure my set was on.
I was not given that option by NBC.
