We Found Some Real Gold! TV show from the early 80’s – “Talk About Pictures”
And of course you can imagine what it’s all about.
In a simple Interview format, ala Charlie Rose, Life Photographer Leigh Wiener and photo enthusiast and perennial sidekick, George Fenneman, interviewed photographers and talked about their work for 130 episodes of an Emmy Award winning program.
While on a set, we met the son of Mr. Wiener who shared with us the incredible archive of his father, along with select episodes of this program.
These interviews need to be seen.
In this clip vid, are just tastes of some of the materials.
Sound still needs to be equalized, and the shows were originally produced on 2″ Quad Video tape. Yeah, exactly. Hard to find machines, if you even knew what they were.
We’re working with the estate to find the perfect outlet for these programs and sponsors to help the post production on these valuable materials.
The world of photography needs them.

This is truly a rich, vein of gold for the photographic world.
