Sometime over the weekend you should notice a new, secure connection to all of my media web sites. I am ready to host all of them with transport layer security, just like banks and other secure sites, encrypting your visit and everything you do while on the web site. I know that it probably isn't terribly important to anyone that you enjoy cowboy shows or jazz music, but at the same time it isn't anyone's business either. Privacy is a rare and disappearing thing, and I believe that this is the right thing to do. You will know that your visit is being securely encrypted when you see the padlock and the 's' in the address as https: instead of http: - If you discover any problems with pages or downloading and viewing shows, let me know and I'll get it fixed.
Slow connection or don't have time to watch these tv shows right now? Download them to your computer or mobile device and watch later offline :~)
Television hit it's 'golden' years in America in the 1950's, but has been around for much longer. In 1935 it was the stuff of science fiction and wonder, like in the movie Murder by Television (October 1, 1935)
Thanks to crude Kinescope copies, and the later use of pre-recorded shows using movie cameras, we can explore the first wonderful years of this invention that helped change the world. I am assembling the largest collection of early television shows that is organized by genre and by date, in one place, that you can watch, download, save and burn to dvd. I hope that you enjoy the early years of the great 'boob toob' as much as I do. Below you can see what I've been up to lately, and under that you can see a list of every television series that I have posted so far. If you have questions or comments, or just want to say 'hi', contact me and I will answer every note to the best of my ability.

If you are part of the ‘Baby Boom’ generation you remember many of these shows as a youngster. If you are a child or grandchild of this generation, you can see what entertained your parents and grandparents when they were young. More and more classic television shows are identified as public domain every day, and I will be adding them to this site in easy to download and view formats, so come back often to check out the new additions. If any copyright or patent owner has an issue with any show offered here, they only need to contact me and the offending item will be quickly removed.
