Proposal for Five Day Bicycle Race

Proposal seeking funding for Five Day Bicycle Race, live coverage of the 1976 Democratic National Convention in New York City. The program was scheduled from 10pm to 1am Sunday July 11, through Thursday, July 15. The group, calling itself Image Union but primarily composed of former TVTV members, had already secured air time on Manhattan Cable and Teleprompter, and estimated their potential audience in excess of 400,000. The program would be in both color and black-and-white, and would be composed of about 25-40% live in the studio and 60-75% videotape from earlier in the day. The program would focus on what people have to say rather than on covering events, and would feature ordinary New Yorkers as well as journalists and politicians. The budget calls for $12,050 to cover expenses and equipment.
