April 1973 National Geographic Special The Haunted West

I was wondering if there are any April 1973 National Geographic issues that have this special listed on the cover. All the April 1973 Geographics I've seen list Bushmen of the Kalahari instead. According to the National Geographic, the May 1974 issue tv pullout said The Bushmen of The Kalahari did not air in 1973 supposedly due to a strike. Another interesting fact is that the 1972-1973 season only had three specials instead of four like the previous seasons. The Wolper website does list The Haunted West as airing on April 12th 1973.

My only copy has the Bushmen - sorry; and I no longer have available the large collection of extras I once had.

I also didn't have time to watch T.V. back in those days - something to do with massive amounts of study, not enough time to do so, and only one T.V. in the day room... those were the days...

I just looked at nine issues and they all have the bushmen special.

Sorry for the late reply.  That issue was hard to get to.  Unfortunately, my issue is also a "Bushmen".

All three of my copies are the bushmen as well.
