All 208 episodes of television's "General Electric Theater," hosted by then-actor Ronald Reagan, are being delivered to former first lady Nancy Reagan as part of the two-year celebration of the late president's 100th birthday.
The 1954-1962 "General Electric Theater" tapes, most believed to be damaged or lost, were recently uncovered in the General Electric/NBC Universal archives. They were restored to broadcast quality for use in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley.
GE chief Jeff Immelt will deliver the tapes to Nancy Reagan Wednesday evening. General Electric is sponsoring the Ronald Reagan Centennial festivities with $15 million. Reagan was born on Feb. 6, 1911.
