What's on TV? Tuesday, June 2, 1953




Even though we talked quite a bit about Queen Elizabeth's Coronation on Saturday, I thought it was interesting to look at the actual listings for the day as they appear in the Chicago edition, just to see exactly how hodgepodge the coverage was throughout the day. In this era before satellites and videotape, you're really at the mercy of when the airplanes can deliver your film, aren't you?  

I do want to call your attention to one additional program; Suspense (8:30 p.m., CBS) airs "The Queen's Ring," the story of the tempestuous affair between Queen Elizabeth I and the Earl of Essex. I'm sure the timing is just a coincidence. Now, enjoy a restful Memorial Day.
