5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgia September 12, 2011

An excellent review of the roots of good TV. They don't make them this good anymore! Anyone interested in the roots of TV should see these subjects!

5.0 out of 5 stars nostalgic April 22, 2014

I enjoyed this program and it is fun to recall the great tv shows and to see the stars as they are now while they are being interviewed. I love Linda Evans from Big Valley and Dynasty.

4.0 out of 5 stars From out of TV's past....... March 8, 2014
Verified Purchase
Had caught some of these episodes on PBS but had missed the one about TV westerns. So that was principal reason for purchase and it did an adequate job. Only an hour (approx.) long so a lot of favorite programs not covered but what they did, they did pretty well. Recommended for those old enough to have caught these shows the first time around or those young enough to be curious about what 50's/60's TV was all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars memories memories! October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase
Yes, I have been around long enough to see many of these show from the beginning, or at least early reruns. These compilation descriptions of the early years of tv is a great historical time line of the growth and creative genious explaining the series of today. It also gives you a trip down memory lane of your favorite actors when they were at their best or just starting out. Giving you floods of memories or introductions to actors or tv shows you have only heard about.
