Before Meet the Press adopted the Pulse of Events as its main theme, the show used other cuts from John Williams’ The Mission. At first they used the Nightly News open. At around the time when Chris Wallace started his short sting as moderator, the Sunday morning show used this bumper as an open. As a close, they used Part I of The Mission. I’m not entirely sure if the dates are correct, but this bumper was definitely used in 1988.
