Dark Shadows - WGHP 1966

Wikipedia and other sites on the web have information stating that WGHP channel 8 in High Point never broadcast Dark Shadows as part of their schedule. That information is false.There were many of the ABC network shows that WGHP moved to different timeslots to accomadate their local programming.Dark Shadows was just one of those. The clipping you see here is from Dec.27,1966. Look at the 10:00 a.m. slot for the Nurses on channel 8. The Nurses was also moved from the afternoon schedule. On other ABC affiliates the Nurses aired in the afternoon prior to Dark Shadows.
