Black & White,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Classic Episodes of the Lawrence Welk Show: Volumes 1-4 (4 Disc Set) (DVD)
I'm not sure if the star rating apply here. I have not watch the shows as I returned the set as soon as I realized the DVDs are black and white. I would like Amazon to add this to the item description.

The description does say that the episodes are black and white. And it seems unfair to post a rating for DVDs you didn't even watch. You can't judge the quality of the content without first viewing that content.

What exactly did you expect? Were you somehow unaware that early Lawrence Welk was in black and white?

Was anything on television in color in the early 60s? I don't know, I never had a color tv until I was grown, in the 70s.

I would agree with the original poster.....maybe some of these shows were originally broadcast in B&W, but the shows from the late '60's were definitely broadcast in color. I don't know from where they got these prints, but they are clearly not the original tapes!!!

Duh! Did you not realize that the entire world was black and white until the sixties? Don't you read Calvin and Hobbes? Why are m***ns allowed to write reviews?

It is really clear who the mor*on is here, unless you just came back from a 50 years coma We did not have DVDs either. also you should know that we have movies filmed in 1944 sold in 2010 ON DVD and IN COLOR.

Wrong. Lawrence Welk started taping in color in 1965. The series started on ABC in 1955. Which would mean approximately ten years of "original tapes" that are black and white.

Amanda, thank you for not calling me a name. As far as this review is concerned you may be right but you missed the point:
1st; I did not buy any tapes
2nd; DVD format was invented in 1995 and lots of media was digitally remastered for quality and yes, to add color so the time of original airing of the shows is irrelevant
To some people here saying that the description states that the product is B and W, that description was added after I returned my product.
