FIELD OF VISION, A television chronicle of a Sunday afternoon with game-by-game commentary by CBS SPORTS announcer Chris Schenkel. Covers seven National football league games played in New York, Washington, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco on Nov. 4, 1962, and all broadcast by the CBS television network. Illustrates procedures that are followed in such a vast undertaking.

'Through his career at CBS, Dorfsman never sat around passively waiting for requests from his internal clients. Instead, he pushed them, inventing projects that he thought needed to be done. Taking pictures at National Football League games in New York to promote CBS's local sports coverage, it occurred to him that there was a bigger story: documenting the technological feat of broadcasting multiple games each Sunday all over the country. The book emphasized the prowess of CBS's sports division, made a much-sought-after gift for football fans, and was credited with helping to secure the network's exclusive contract to cover NFL games the following year.' — Michael Bierut, Design Observer
