This site mentions a lot of the footage we know about, but also saw this.

208. FLORIDA AT THE WORLD’S FAIR 1964

25:32; B&W; sound; V-226 DA118; S. 828

This is kinescope footage of WTVJ-TV’s “FYI” program filmed on location at the New York World’s Fair Florida Pavilion construction site. According to the script, the pavilion will feature “pretty girls, orange juice, jumping porpoises and all the other wonderful things that represent Florida.” There are interviews with Florida businessmen and officials involved in the World’s Fair project. Produced by the Florida Development Commission and WTVJ-TV.

564. NUMBER ONE AT THE FAIR July 30, 1965

14:35; color; sound; V-76 CA071; S.828

This is an excellent print of the Florida Pavilion at the New York World's Fair. Gov. Haydon Burns, Dick Pope (founder of Cypress Gardens ), and Charles Campbell (Chairman of FDC) are there for the festivities, which include a ski show. Produced by FDC.

Hey Bill Cotter,

Did you ever find out what was on those two reels of tape you bought... the ones Randy was hoping were the master CoP recordings?

Funny you should ask. They were too big for my tape recorder, so a friend at Sony has volunteered to copy them. Just spoke with him last night about it! He is away on business until mid-week, at which point I will get the reels to him. Hopefully we'll know soon!

Bill
