INTERVIEWER: Heh. Brilliant. Let's take some of those viewer phone calls. Charlotte, North Carolina. You're on with Christof.
MALE VIEWER: (over the phone) Um…yeah...uh...Hi, Christof...uh, I was just wondering how many cameras you got there in that town.
CHRISTOF: Somewhere in the vicinity of five thousand.
MALE VIEWER: Oh...Now that's a lot of cameras.
CHRISTOF: Remember, we started with just one. He was uh...curious from birth. Premature by two weeks, it was almost as if he couldn't wait to get started.
INTERVIEWER: And of course his eagerness to leave his mother's womb uh...was the very reason he was the one who was selected.
CHRISTOF: In competition with five other unwanted pregnancies, the casting of the show, determined by an air date, Truman was the one who arrived on cue.
INTERVIEWER: Incidentally, uh, I believe Truman is the first child to have been legally adopted by a corporation?
