Can someone please tell me the approximate Mission Elapsed Time start for the press conference that followed the Apollo 13 accident?

(I know it was scheduled approximately midnight local time and around 59-60 hour MET but cannot find a reference to the actual. The PAO Apollo 13 transcript doesn't show it as far as I can see).

The Special Press Conference (as the transcript is entitled) took place on April 14 at 12:30AM CST.

Thanks for that. On the transcript at 12:30 a.m. CST there is no reference to the conference.

That time would seem to indicate it was broadcast at about 59 hrs 17 minutes Mission Elapsed Time?

All times are CT (US)
