Inside NBC was a local show seen two days a week on NBC's flagship station in New York City.  It aired for fifteen minutes, just ahead of weather and news reports, and usually consisted of Bill looking behind the scenes at some aspect of an NBC TV or radio production.  Sometimes, however, the focus would be entirely different, such as an early home shopping segment known as Cullen's Corner.

An interesting footnote to this series came to our attention recently.  Bill appeared on a 1987 episode of The $25,000 Pyramid and in conversation with host Dick Clark, mentioned that Bob Stewart had produced a show called Cullen's Corner.  Presumably, he was referring to the segments of this series which used that title.  If that's the case, then this program, not The Price Is Right, marks the first collaboration with Bill and his longtime producer and friend.

EPISODE GUIDE   
Researcher Leah Biel was kind enough to provide us this episode guide based on listings in the NYC edition of TV Guide.  While we doubt that many episodes of this obscurity survive today, it's still interesting to see the wide variety of subjects covered in this brief series.
