Live TV!, 20 September 2009
I am astounded by the entire concept of this series. From the very
early days of television, before videotaping, these were broadcast LIVE
(including commercials). I find them to be a very intriguing look at
our past, both as a broadcasting technology and as a national
time-capsule. The commercials are *informative* as well as marketing.
And they are all LIVE.
That puts these into the category of an hour-log "Play". The stories
are top-notch, and the production is great (considering the technology
available at the time). Only some of the later broadcasts are available
on video because most were lost since there was no adequate recording
medium at the time.
