Syracuse University provides a listing of their collection of 1952-1954 Omnibus program kinescope originals and videotape copies. In the first of two sections, the subject index lists segments which fit into the following areas: art, ballet and modern dance, children's programs, cinema and photography, comedy sketches, documentaries, drama, history, miscellaneous programs, music, Omnibus overview, opera, poetry, science and nature study, and the excursion series. Section 2 contains entries in alphabetical order by the program name; also given are the program length, Omnibus number, description, and date aired. The excursion series is reviewed separately in the same manner. (The compiler describes the programs as providing "something for everybody--from ballet to Benny Goodman, Jack Benny to Orson Wells, quips by Frank Lloyd Wright to an X-ray film of a man swallowing a candy bar, and a public medium of expression for such talented individuals as John Steinbeck, Helen Hays, James Thurber, William Saroyan, and James Agee.")
