The first New Year's "Blue Light", 1962.
Probably, the program "Blue Light" became the first holiday for Soviet TV viewers.
Touching, in some places naive, but kind and sincere transfer with immediately remembered all the screensaver - the iron spiral Shukhov Tower - collected from the screens the whole country. "Ogonek" long before the advent of special projects has become, perhaps, the only major gift for every family.
A rare New Year or May Day table did without olive and champagne salad, just as a rare family did not intend to watch a favorite program from TVs.
Suffice it to recall the atmosphere in the studio itself, imitating just such family gatherings.
In the studio, the first creators of the "Blue Light" tell how it all began, reveal the technical secrets of filming and recall funny stories with participation leading and guests of the program: director Yury Bogatyrenko, editor Valentin Shatrova, cameraman Marat Larin, assistant director Anel Merkulov, actor and singer Oleg Anofriev, announcer of CT Igor Kirillov.
