NFL Films went through an exhaustive process, searching through dozens of sources, and was able to find at least one camera angle of all 145 plays of the first Super Bowl and stitch it all together for the first time.

The game will air in its entirety on Friday along with audio from the original NBC radio broadcast, as well as additional footage including sideline footage of Packers coach Vince Lombardi, a postgame interview with Chiefs coach Hank Stram and a conversation between Commissioner Pete Rozelle and player-turned-broadcaster Pat Summerall.

Friday marks an impressive date in history, it is the 49th anniversary of Super Bowl I, which was played on January 15, 1967 in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In case you weren’t aware, the Packers went on to beat the Chiefs 35-10.
