Studio One in Hollywood - 1948-1958

Studio One

Studio One was a C.B.S. series that ran from 1948 till 1958, featuring live television performances of an hour each. As with all 'live' television that has survived, what we can see is the Kinescope version of the show. While the show was being performed and broadcast live, in a corner of the television studio they would place a large television set, and aim a traditional Hollywood movie camera at the television, thus recording the episode.
