Can't help but feel it was a little inappropriate to have a montage of images from the crash backed by the usual cheery Breakfast Time theme music.

That particular music was one of two sombre versions used on special occasions and in fact it was the more understated of the two. It was also used during the Gulf War in 1991. The other sombre version was a bit more dramatic and tended to be used the morning after elections etc.

It doesn't sound very sombre! I think it's the flute flourishes (apologies if this is completely the wrong musical phrase)

There's a very good 30 For 30 documentary about that, one of the things it mentions that I didn't know before is that those famous shots of the damage to the Bay Bridge came from the Goodyear blimp which was already up for the World Series.

Was going to mention that, it’s a great watch, one of the best in the series.

I wonder if they kept it after putting so much effort producing the whole thing on location. Interesting to see it's all on location and on video way back in 1968 as well and almost looks as it if was filmed yesterday, when we were still getting scratchy & grainy film inserts on shows made over 20 years later.
