Before the Internet was ready for prime time

---doctors were limited in terms of educational resources. Today webcasts are available on demand for the topic of your choosing. Back then docs relied on broadcast media like Physicians Radio Network (PRN) and Lifetime Medical Television. LMT ran all day every Sunday. I spent many a Sunday afternoon in the 80s and early 90s watching their programming, made possible by support from evil pharma. Here's another montage of promos and ads. LMT had a parade of stars as hosts and contributers and in this clip you'll see Bernard Lown, Bob Rakel and Roger Bone.
