  2. As a child of the 60’s, growing up watching television, I found this DVD to be very entertaining and informative. Lot’s of trivia in this progam. I would recommend it to anyone under 50 for a better understanding of what good television was, and the people who made it.

  3. I wasted a lot of time when I was young watching re-runs of these shows. I felt, watching this DVD, like I was looking through an old family photo album.

    This DVD explains a lot of stuff I could never have figured out on my own. “Family secrets”, explained 30 years later.

    These actors, shown in color and black & white clips, never seem to get any older. Their faces are so familiar. It’s kind of freaky to realize that none of them have the slightest idea who I am.
    Rating: 4 / 5

  4. This series is among the finest documenting television’s early history. Complete with interviews from those involved with the earliest broadcasts and programs, this series reveals the inside story behind the quiz show scandal, the Smother’s Brothers cancelation, the popularity of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, as well as the various talk shows to grace late-night television. Each program discusses one facet of television’s history: game shows, talk shows, comedy, etc…

    A must for those interested in the history of the medium.
