60's NYE Ball Drop
December 24, 2012 12:41 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for the best quality video of a TV broadcast of the ball drop in Time Square from any time during the 1960s.

So far I found this video on YouTube, which is fairly blocky. I am wondering if there are any higher quality videos out there. I'd be willing to pay some money for a higher quality source, so if there was some documentary or something that contained a clip, that would be workable as well.

I do not care about the year, as long as it is some time during the 60s.

You could check the Vanderbilt TV archives. They are not online but if you want it that might be the best source.

Vanderbilt's archive has nightly news broadcasts, but their earliest date is 1968. Takes about 2 weeks to get the DVD.
