Foreign TV Execs Interested in First Lady's White House Tour

Feb. 16, 1962 - Foreign television executives from Communist Hungary to Japan are regarding the TV White House tour with Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy as a potential hit show, sight unseen. Since the show was televised Wednesday night with an estimated total of 46,550,000 American viewers looking on, CBS has been asked to supply prints to 14 nations interested in buying it for their own stations. When the show was made, Mrs. Kennedy delivered introductions about one minute in length in French and Spanish as well as in English with an eye to foreign distribution.
