Dear 100 Hour Board,

My dad recently related the story to me that him and his ex-wife were on a live TV therapy show back in the 1980s, and now I am so curious! The show was called "Getting in Touch with Dr. David Viscott" and was filmed in LA in front of a live TV audience. After googling for awhile, I can't seem to find any way of accessing or finding this footage. Can you help us find a way to get in touch with the production company (or anyone else that could help) so we can get a copy of the episode?

P.S. My dad's name is Paul and his ex-wife's name was Susan (Susie).


Dear you,

I searched high and low and wasn't able to find any way to find the video online. However, I did read on David's Wikipedia article that one of his television shows was run on KNBC Los Angeles. Here's their Contact Us page. I would start there and see if you can get them to tell you if they have any of the episodes or if they know how you can get your hands on the episodes. 

Unfortunately, that's the best advice I can give you based on the information I was able to find. 

Good luck!

If you're a student at BYU (or another university), the library is AMAZING. They've often helped me get my hands on hard-to-find materials. Especially if you know the season and episode of the show you want to see, I would recommend submitting an interlibrary loan request (which works for any kind of resource, not just books). You can also go in and talk in person with a librarian, who will be happy to help you. No one can guarantee that they'll find what you're looking for, but they're basically ninjas.
