Would love to see this again!
24 December 2011 | by gramfinnSee all my reviews

I was only 11 years old at the time. I will never forget this show. Maybe it was my first documentary. But it made such an impression on me. I have never forgotten its concept and how much I enjoyed seeing old favorites. I wish they would show it again sometime, or make it available for sale. If you get a chance to watch it, I know you will enjoy it. Most of the shows it highlighted were long gone from the TV screen. A few were still being broadcast. It is all fuzzy to me. Yet I can remember thinking at the time that I hoped this would be done after the sixties and beyond. Unfortunately, that wasn't to be. The ancient technology used in 1960 made for a great show. I can only imagine what could be accomplished today.
