TV Guide Close Up [1969]

I always enjoyed flipping through TV Guide when I was a kid. I suppose it was the equivalent of a kid today going forward on the on-screen program schedule to see what shows are coming up in the next few days. Images from old issues of TV Guide are always quick to trigger a feeling of nostalgia for me which is why I thought this clipping was especially cool..

Granted it came from well before my time, the format of the Close Up feature looks exactly as it did several years later when I would have been reading something similar about the Dukes of Hazzard.

I'm not entirely sure about the date of this clipping or what episode it is previewing; however, the eBay auction it is a part of suggests that it is from 1969. A quick search online leads me to believe that this feature previews a one-hour special from November 24th of that year.
