It is difficult to tell if it is day or night with black-out materials over all of the windows. You must watch where you step, not to trip over the many cables tying together cameras, sound and monitoring equipment. There is conversation, but only at the end of a microphone. Is this a high-tech TV studio in either New York or Los Angeles ?
No, it is the Bed and Breakfast on White Rock Creek!

During the days of January 13th to the 17th of 2008, the CBS news magazine program 48 HOURS/ MYSTERY transformed The Great Room at the Bed & Breakfast on White Rock Creek into their studio to film an up-coming episode. News correspondent Erin Moriarty conducted interviews related to a local murder mystery which aired May 10, 2008 on the CBS network.

Erin Moriarty has been a correspondent for 48 Hours since 1990. She has covered the death of Princess Diana, the Jon Benet Ramsey investigation, the murder of financier Edmund Safra, and the war in Iraq . Before that, Moriarty was the consumer correspondent for CBS This Morning 1986-90 and the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather in 1990.

CBS chose our location partially for our proximity to the related story, as well as the size of our Great Room. The four man camera crew was enthusiastic when they saw the 1200sqft room they had to work in. The crew commented that they would normally have to shoot in multiple locations. Our room provided them the opportunity to continue in one location, while staging totally different atmospheres for each interview. When viewing the program you may be able to recognize elements of our bed and breakfast.

Dana & Retha,

Thanks for your hospitality, you folks are great! I hope that I will have the opportunity to visit you again. It would be great if you could forward the recipes for that wonderful salsa and egg pie.

Thank again
