Abstract:

The Library of American Broadcasting Scripts Collection is a collection of radio and television scripts gathered from several sources and donations by the original staff of the Library of American Broadcasting. Dating from 1925 to 1991, these scripts are the actual scripts used by radio and television performers. Many of the scripts contain the hand-written markings the performers created as they were preparing the script for broadcast. These scripts document almost seventy years of radio and television broadcasting and represent a variety of genres, including comedy, drama, soap operas, quiz programs, news programs, and music programs.
