Notes[edit]

  • The first instant replay occurred December 7, 1963 during the Army–Navy Game played in Philadelphia and telecast by CBS-TV. The program was directed by CBS Sports' top director, Tony Verna.[2] Verna's account of how he was able to combine the limited abilities of the videotape machines can be found in two of his early books, Live TV and Global Television (both Focal Press) and a 2008 book Instant Replay, The Day That Changed Sports Forever (from Creative Publishers International). A personal account of the telecast can be found in the autobiography of the game announcer Lindsey Nelson (Hello Everybody, I'm Lindsey Nelson).
