Not so much a commercial as an infomercial.  This 10 minute 1963 promotional reel for the A.C. Gilbert company highlights childrens' microscopes, telescopes, physics sets, electrical engineering sets, chemistry sets, electronics sets, and the ever-popular Erector sets.  An extensive TV ad campaign was planned the same year that this film was produced, but the country went into mourning over JFK's death, the networks slowed airing toy commercials, and toy sales plummeted.  The A.C.

The only PD episode of Burke's Law. Episode Title: "Who Killed Jason Shaw" S1 E15 This show was originally set to air on 22 November 1963. It was pushed back by the network's coverage of John F Kennedy's assassination. This film is in the public domain because its copyright was not renewed in 1991, which was the necessary time for any film with a date in notice of 1963.

This ABC television ad was made to promote the 5th season (the first to be filmed in color) which debuted in America in January 1967. Previously, in the spring of '66, the black & white 4th season was shown in the U.S. and proved popular enough for ABC to pay an unprecedented $2 million for 26 episodes. However, they insisted the new shows be in color. This promo is the only color footage of Diana Rigg in her iconic leather catsuit. Her wardrobe for the 5th season was entirely revamped with...

The four-minute compilation from 1938 exists only because of a technological fluke and the enthusiasm of two television buffs, one in Britain and the other in America where, thanks to freak atmospheric conditions, it was picked up and recorded on a cine camera placed in front of a television screen as the images came in. Andrew Emmerson, the British enthusiast, spent five years tracking down the recording and believes it is the only surviving example of pre-war live high-definition British...

A little curiosity. Here's the pilot of "Steptoe and Son" which originally aired as part of the BBC TV show Comedy Playhouse. The full series was the basis for "Sanford and Son" and you can see some of that here. I'll upload the first few episodes of the proper series later in the month. Plot: Harold's been offered a job elsewhere, so when he discovers Albert has been drinking out of the cocktail cabinet, he begins to pack up his belongings and leave his dad for good.

The program was an adventure series about Sergeant Frank Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police and his lead sled dog, Yukon King, as they fought evildoers in the Northern wilderness during the Gold Rush of the 1890's. Preston first joined the Mounties to capture his father's killer and when he was successful he was promoted to Sergeant. Preston's staunchest ally, who was arguably the true star of the show and indeed often did more work than he did, was the brave Alaskan husky, Yukon King....
