SS United States on CNN Live July 7, 1999



Thought to have been lost, this rare footage from a 1999 CNN Live broadcast was found in the SS United States Foundation archives. The footage is grainy and flows more like a movie from the silent screen era, but some wonderful footage remains! This footage is the only known national news broadcast featuring maritime legend Frank O Braynard. The short interview with SSUSF Chairman Robert Westover is also (to date) the only known Big U engine interview to appear on national prime time TV.
