About Lou Tyrrell

For more than fifty years I was a producer/director writer in television. In the golden years I worked on the US Steel Hour on ABC, the first live documentary show, Medical Horizons and NCAA College football. I left ABC and did closed circuit shows for doctors sponsored by CIBA Pharmaceuticals using the Eidophor dark field projector and a mobile unit producing CBS Color pictures. 1960 I directed kid shows, Pip the Piper for General Mills and Marx Magic Midway, a circus for Marx toys. Then I met Allen Funt and he hired me to direct Candid Camera, now read the book and follow my life over the three years I lived with Allen and the daily problems of putting together one of America's longest running television shows.
