The half hour show is not available, but we can piece together from these previews that Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were on the program. Also there to make speeches were Arthur A. Schuck (misspelled in all previews on this page), Chief Scout Executive and Amory Houghton, President of the Boy Scouts of America. The Mitchell Chorus and a choir made-up of one-time Boy Scouts provided the music.

A publicity photo, apparently showing Stewart performing with Roy and Dale, is show below:
