Just thought this is the right place to ask this:

I'm searching for this specific publication:

About Music and Writers
BMI Public Relations Department, 1961

http://books.google.gr/books?ei=M5z0UJmqPIfA0QW1hIH4Dg&hl=el&id=_NljAAAAIAAJ&dq=%22general+electric%22+%22johnny+williams%22&q=%22johnny+williams%22#search_anchor

It seems it might have some information on Williams including his TV work.
I sent an email to losangeles@bmi.com but i haven't got a reply.

Can anyone guide me to where I should send an email to, to ask for it?

Well, that was in Greek (literally), so difficult to make out. But any new source about this period is well worth investigating. I'm sorry I can't help you with any tips, though.

oh , sorry.
but, didn't you see the snippets from the book?
anyway..

something else.
That Kraft mystery thing is surely a mystery!!
There is this episode in youtube "Shadow of Man" which has the credits of Suspense Theatre.
I looked it up, and it seems it was the pilot of the series.

But then, i have it with the opening credits of Kraft Mystery!
It seems it was reused for episode 1 of Season 3 of that series!!

Why do they confuse us with episodes interchanging between series?? hehe
By the way, that episode was scored by Goldsmith.

Yes, I saw the snippets. Very intriguing!

I'm not even going to TRY to make sense of all the Kraft series at this point....I need some serious surplus of brainpower for that! smile

And here's the only (according to imdb) episode of Markham (1959), that Johnny Williams scored.

Another rarity comes in surface!!! smile

Thanks Kons. I don't think I ever saw the Keir Dullea episode. Great Johnny Score as always!

Wow. What a Time Machine journey. I certainly didn't expect when I got up this morning that before retiring I'd be able to get a glimpse of shows from ALCOA PREMIERE. Thank you! I can't say I recall THE BROKEN YEAR, but I vividly recall PEOPLE NEED PEOPLE, and every word of Fred's introductory/closing remarks -- it was the very first ALCOA PREMIERE. They were putting their best foot forward, and I think this first show was very well received. (Being television, naturally, it was hard to maintain that quality over an entire season, but I'd say ALCOA was better than average.) If memory serves, they kept the momentum going with the second episode being THE FUGITIVE EYE, starring Charlton Heston at the height of his movie career, a real coup for ALCOA. He plays an Irishman temporarily blinded -- hence the title -- and to this day I can still hum Johnny Williams' lilting Irish folklike theme for this episode. Of the titles I've seen listed here, some I recall by name, and others don't ring a bell at the moment. It would be very interesting, in a historical/sociological sense, to see HOUR OF THE BATH again, it being a story about a Yank in Vietnam, produced before most Americans had ever heard of that country.

Ok, i have some news.
I was looking at imdb and i saw a new addtion in williams' filmography, an unsold pilot:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0449830/?ref_=nm_flmg_com_110

given that imdb is full of errors, i thought maybe this is too, but then i found the reference in Encyclopedia of Television Pilots, 1937-2012 with specific mention of Williams:
http://tinyurl.com/gloh7v9

the edition i have which goes up to 2007 mentions the pilot, but doesn't mention him.
so, maybe this is new information?

edit: found a scene in youtube, but unfortunately it doesn't include the credits:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bf432VpNn4g
(i contacted the uploader)

* * *

Also something entirely new that we didn't know of, a CONFIRMED entry for an episode of the series BREAKING POINT:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0532075/?ref_=nm_flmg_com_124

wink
Look at the end credits:

Excellent research, Konstantinos! I'll add BREAKING POINT to the list.

Regarding AND BABY MAKES THREE, could it be that the book references the entry of IMDB rather than the other way around? If so, I wouldn't trust it. Hope you get to hear back from the uploader re: end credits.

yes, i thought of it but it seems a serious book. Would it have imdb as its only source?
On the other hand it was right about Breaking Point.

Hope she responds.
It is also sold here:

That music bit in the scene i posted above sounds like it could have been written by Williams. big grin
