    Twenty years after the first period of kinescope destruction at the hands of CBS employees, Goodson-Todman Productions was responsible for accidentally destroying sixteen safety-film kinescopes while Gil Fates and three of his colleagues were compiling clips for a 25th anniversary special. In March and early April 1975, they were working at an expensive editing facility in Manhattan under a strict deadline. Five of the sixteen ruined shows dated from 1967. The 25th anniversary special is available for viewing on a web site, also at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, California. Some of the clips that had been removed from kinescopes did not end up in the special, and they have been lost. Nothing from the five 1967 shows ended up in the special.
