NBC presented Peter Pan live as part of Producers’ Showcase (with nearly all
of the show’s original cast) as the first full-length Broadway production on color
TV. The show attracted a then-record audience of 65-million viewers, which was
the highest ever up to that time for a single television program. The broadcast
was produced live and in color, but only black-and-white kinescope recordings
survive.
