Eye On New York (public affairs, hosted by Bill Leonard)

    (CBS Sunday Mornings, 1955 - 1959)

    [Long before CBS famed show "Sunday Morning" aired on
     Sunday Mornings with Charles Kurault looking out over
     the issues and culture across the whole country, this 
     CBS series broadcast on Sunday Mornings looked inward, 
     on the issues and culture and politics of New York;

     Its thoughtful treatment and intelligent documentaries
     did set the tone for what was to follow however...and
     was a predecessor on which the broader series was built]


Theme: "Eye On New York Theme"

    [Mitch Leigh was a versatile New York jazz composer who
     composed jingle themes including "The Dis-advantages
     Of You" for Benson & Hedges 100s cigarettes (a slinky 
     instrumental tune made into a 1960s pop chart single),
     and the famous broadway musical "Man Of La Mancha"; he
     also founded a small but well-done production library
     called "The Century Library of Music and Sound"; his
     brother was pianist Dick Hyman]
