"Jim Nantz Remembers Augusta: The 1975 Masters" will air on Sunday, and include an interview with winner Jack Nicklaus.

CBS Sports will broadcast Jim Nantz Remembers Augusta: The 1975 Masters on Sunday, April 10 at 1 p.m. ET.

Nantz is on his 26th master for CBS Sports; his 24th as host.

The show will chronicle the memorable showdown between Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Johnny Miller in 1975, before Nicklaus sunk a 40-foot birdie putt in his 16th hole to win his record fifth Masters victory.
 
"Back in 1975 people didn’t have TiVo or DVRs to be able to record events if they missed them on television," Nantz says in a statement.  "This is a rare mulligan for people to look back and experience this historic tournament. It is a privilege to bring back the 1975 Masters, considered by many golf purists to have been the most dramatic final round in the history of this storied event."
 
The one-hour special includes a conversation with six-time Masters champion Nicklaus, as well as Weiskopf and Miller.

Nantz is executive producer. Chris Svendsen is director and producer.
