Jack Webb's first solo outing was in One Out of Seven, which premiered over ABC's KGO on February 6, 1946. Airing on Wednesday evenings at 9 p.m. throughout the Bay Area, the series was a commentary on one of the seven most interesting or compelling wire service stories to surface for that week. As the opener for each episode portentously announced: "24 hours make a day. Seven days make one week. And from these past seven days, the Editors here in our San Francisco newsroom have chosen the one story which they have judged "most worthy of retelling." This is 'One Out of Seven'! " And indeed, Jack Webb both prefaced and closed each broadcast with the following disclaimer: "The material and direct quotations included within the following program have been taken from authoritative files and from dispatches filed by the Associated Press and International News Service. We present these statements without editorial comment. We assume no responsibility for their content." A prudent disclaimer indeed, given the potentially volatile premiere story: an exposé of the 'honorable' Senator Theodore Gilmore Bilbo, arguably one of the most blatantly racist members of the United States Senate of his era. In six brilliantly biting and caustic vignettes or 'pictures', narrator--and performer--Jack Webb paints a damningly accurate portrayal of the hypocritcal, racist Senator from Mississippi. Throughout the entire seven episodes of One Out of Seven, Jack Webb portrays every character himself.
