Submitted for your consideration, a logistical nightmare.

Imagine you are a television producer hosting the first ever series of TV Presidential debates. Both candidates of the two parties that matter have agreed to spar on a weekly schedule, and each event promises to be a ratings bonanza. Your first two shows live up to expectations, and you lick your chops in heady anticipation of number three.

And then you learn that your special guests are busy campaigning on opposite sides of the country that day.

What do you do? The show obviously must go on! Thank goodness for Bill Bradshaw of Cincinnati's WKRC and his stunning invention, "Split Screen." You may have seen examples of this technique in recent episodes of Howdy Doody; two completely different images are stitched together, live, so that they can be seen at the same time by the viewer.
