A Guide to Classic/Vintage TV-on-DVD from the Timeless Media Group

A Listmania! list by Robert Huggins (Suburban Philadelphia, PA United States)
(VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "The Timeless Media Group, based in Oregon, has been quietly building a sizeable library of older television shows on DVD, many of which haven't been broadcast in decades. Timeless created much excitement among fans of TV Westerns during the Fall of 2007 when they released episodes from six older Westerns from the late 1950s and early 1960s.

This guide will focus on the "premium," licensed titles from Timeless. Timeless also has a budget line of TV-on-DVD titled "Timeless Television" that are comprised of episodes that have fallen into the public domain but will not be included here with one or two exceptions."
The Adventures of Robin Hood
1.  The Adventures of Robin Hood DVD ~ Richard Greene
The list author says:
  "This release is actually only the first 30 episodes (of 39) from season 1, but the audio/visual presentation is, perhaps, the best of all the various Robin Hood DVD releases issued in the U.S."
