Tuesday's Overlooked TV: Simple Gifts, "No Room At The Inn"

For the last Tuesday before Christmas, I present the last installment of the long-lost PBS holiday special Simple Gifts. This installment is "No Room At The Inn" by R. O. Blechman, and it details Joseph and Mary's travel to Bethlehem and their inability to get a proper place to stay for Jesus' birth. Beautiful in its simplicity, it's easily my favorite segment of the special.

This isn't the first time I've featured Blechman's work. Here are two short promo pieces for CBS television from the 1960s that showcase Blechman's heartfelt style.
