1940s Television

In the 1940s, TV was in its infancy. That becomes evident when you know that in 1946 (the earliest year for which I have records) there were a total of 2 National Networks: NBC and THE DU MONT NETWORK. It's even clearer when you learn that you can count ALL the Network Programs on your fingers and toes, and have toes left over! (There were a total of 15 programs!). Since I have no first hand knowledge of these shows, (I was born in 1950), I used the following as my source: http://www.answers.com/topic/1946-47-united-states-network-television-schedule, and I verified them using IMDb.com.

Here's a great site offering "HARD TO FIND VIDEOS": http://www.robertsvideos.com/.

If you click here you'll go to the Internet Movie Database site ( IMDb.com ). If you cut and paste a show's title into the search line, you'll be given all kinds of info about that show. This web site has settled many many arguements between my wife and myself.

Those of you from the UK will find some your classic TV programs located at http://www.screenonline.org.uk and sites, http://www.whirligig-tv.co.uk/ and http://www.answers.com/topic/1940-in-television (USA, UK & Canada)
