Can I go back in time and give him all my money to invest for me?

Warren Buffett was interviewed by KMTV, Omaha in early June of 1962.

A University of Nebraska at Omaha School of Communication documentary team discovered the film clip in the Nebraska State Historical Society archives in March of 2013.

The clip likely never aired on local television, according to an independent analysis by retired videographers and producers. It is a long clip for broadcast news, it showed no signs of editing and its condition is extremely good.

The film clip was used in the new documentary, "Mr. Buffett the Teacher" (2013), which describes Warren Buffett's University of Omaha teaching of investing from 1951 through 1962. This is the earliest known visual recording of the financial icon, yet nobody seemed to know it existed.

Great find! It's interesting in his way of speaking then is so different from now, in that he speaks more technically, solely on the market. Now his reputation and wisdom is much more broad and "oracle" like, and not as a market analyst.
