"The Tomorrow Show" with Tom Snyder is NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE. October 15, 1973-January 28, 1982. This broadcast featured the first of four discussions about mental illness, broadcast on location at the Rockland Psychiatric Center in Orangeburg, New York. Tom Snyder interviews blind patient Pat Archer who discusses her life at Rockland the past 25 years, the drugs offered to her including Nervine, and her reason for being at Rockland Psychiatric Center. Patients David Wolf and Bertha Clark discuss their need for rehabilitation and their views of the programs they are in and if they believe they have been effective... pros and cons and effects of medications consumed including Lithium. Betty Oliver is interviewed. She has been at Rockland since 1942 and is now its director. She tells Tom what happens to patients when they leave an institutional setting and how they will adapt once on their own again. Billy Williams, Rockland Psychiatric Center coordinator for all the wards at the facility, talks about drug programs, need for greater trained staff and approach to communicating with patients. NOTE: This video taped broadcast was executed using an extreme "noisy" location environment creating certain interviews, by Tom Snyder, not very pristine. Some of the interviews were conducted with great ambient sound in the background, rendering a less than desirable sound track, discernable, but not as professional as one would expect from a Tomorrow Show sound engineer. Other segment interviews were done in more quiet locations and produced much better sound fidelity. This broadcast was joined in progress. Only the opening of the program is missing, otherwise this audio air check is complete. An hour-long talk show hosted by Tom Snyder. Network television's first entry into late-late-night programming on weeknights Monday thru Thursday, usually broadcasting on tape 1 AM to 2 AM. "Tomorrow" was expanded to 90 minutes on September 16, 1980.
