Today in Heritage History, 1952, for the very first time ever, a human birth is televised by educational channel KOA-TV in Denver, Colorado. KOA assured the birth mother that her face would at no time be shown during the broadcast. They did however, run a “Guess Who’s the Mystery Vagina” promotion and phone-in contest asking for station subscriber donations, during the shows airing. The Grand Prize winner received an all expense paid historical trip for two to Virgin City, Wyoming. Oddly and of special note, the Grand Prize winner turned-out to be someone other than  the “mystery” vagina’s husband, and coincidentally (also) the main Cameraman.
