In 1952, 4' 33" (“Four Minutes, Thirty-three Seconds”), a three-movement composition by avant-garde composer John Cage, had its premiere in Woodstock, New York, as pianist David Tudor sat at a piano and, for a total of four minutes and 33 seconds, played…nothing. (According to Cage, the “music” consisted of the settingʹs background noises, including the sounds of the increasingly restive audience.)

In 1967, “The Final Episode of The Fugitive”. Convicted of killing his wife, Doctor Richard Kimble (David Jansen) — “an innocent victim of blind justice” — was finally able to vindicate himself in the second half of a two-parter that was the most-seen regular series episode at that time. Kimble convinced Philip Gerard, the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture, to grant him 24 hours to track down the real killer, the notorious one-armed man. The confrontation took place at an abandoned amusement park at the top of the towering Mahi-Mahi ride. The killerʹs confession was heard by Kimble alone before the one-armed man plunged to his death. Fortunately, a witness finally came forward and Kimble was acquitted. As he walked from the courtroom, a free man at last, a squad car screamed up to the curb and two policemen hurried out. In that moment, we saw in Kimbleʹs haunted eyes and tensed body that he was getting ready to flee. But the cops walked right past him and then, only then, did Kimble realize that this was the day the running stopped. The show held the record as most watched episode of a TV series ever (72% of all TVs were tuned in to that episode) until the “Who shot J.R.? ”episode of “Dallas” in 1980.
