The year the big screen came to the little screen

The Academy Awards in 1959, once they had become a household event.

  • The House Natural Resources Committee takes a trip to Fresno, Calif., for a field hearing on the Golden State water crisis.
  • The Federal Reserve wraps up a two-day meeting on interest rates.
  • And sixty-one years ago the Oscars were televised for the first time.
