The video is narrated by famous 1960’s CBS broadcaster Ray Scott, who was the “voice of the Packers” in the Lombardi era.
This shot gives us a look at the early 1980’s Lambeau Field, before any of the skyboxes were added above the bowl’s top rim.
One of the two sponsors of the video presentation, at least when it was broadcast on PBS when we recorded it in the early 1990’s.
Kellogg Bank was the second sponsor on this broadcast, as the camera shows the other interior end of Lambeau.
The rest of today’s images are from the video’s introductory sequence, featuring quotes from Green Bay football heroes from several generations. Above, Clark Hinkle as he appeared in his playing days. The Oneida Street practice field is named after him.
Hinkle as he appeared at the time of the filming. He comments seemingly resentfully here about how people think that the Packers started when Lombardi came to town, but that there was football long before that time in Green Bay.
The man behind it all — Curly Lambeau. There were others behind the creation of the Packers, as we’ll see later.
Longtime Green Bay Press-Gazette reporter and Packers’ media director (and later, team historian) Lee Remmel.
Don Hutson as he looked in the early 1980’s. The “Don Hutson Center,” the Packers’ current indoor practice facility, was obviously named after him.
Two then-current Packers were included in the video. The first was lineman Greg Koch, who was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 2010.
Wrapping up the introductory part of the video, Ray Scott provides some insight while standing in the old Packers Hall of Fame. Join us next time as we delve into the early days of Packers’ football.
