Kuralt sometimes brought his heavy hand to bear on scripts,
says "Sunday Morning" Producer Mary Lou Teel. "If he
knew that he could improve the writing, he would do it," she
says. "If not, he would leave it alone."
In example #1, Kuralt marks up the script but
adds at the top that he loved the piece. Not being one to gush praise,
when Kuralt told Teel she had done a good job, she knew he meant it.
For the piece below, Kuralt exclaimed, Man, you really worked
on this. Teel still feels the tingle from that high accolade.
In example #2, Kuralt did
less marking. [Editor's note: The transcript below is incomplete.]
In example #3, Kuralt rewrote
the ending. [Editor's note: The transcript below is incomplete.]
An intellectually stimulating collection of insightful
and occasionally poignant commentaries, Charles Kuralt's People is
very highly recommended reading for students of the human condition in
and legions of Charles Kuralt fans in particular. — Midwest Book
