Moore when television film crews of Columbia Broadcasting System finished recording his research notes on the Waco tornado. That was four years ago when CBS filmed The Search. Today, Dr. Moore's years of research are condensed into one 334-page book called Tornadoes Over Texas. Dr. Moore mentions the Waco TV incident in his introduction. "When the Columbia Broadcasting System became interested in a television presentation ©f the research project," Dr. Moore writes, "it was found imposible to escape putting major emphasis on what had happened during and immediately after the tornado, with only and almost casual reference to the fact that research was being done on rehabilitation of the cities."
