Shutan Camera - "Talk About Pictures" (Commercial, 1982)

Views: 2823

Here's an extra-long Shutan Camera commercial which was used as sponsorship for "Talk About Pictures" - a show which aired Sundays at Noon on WMAQ Channel 5, hosted by George Fenneman. (He would sit at a table with a pro photographer and they would look at one of his/her photos and discuss the subject, technique, equipment, inspirations, etc.)

The lady in the ad is actress/model Jennifer Girard. She is n...

WLS Channel 7 - Ending of Saturday Night Movie, Reflections and Station Sign-Off (1977)

Views: 2178

Here's (as far as I'm aware) the earliest known (to date) sign-off sequence, from any channel, to turn up here. This one is from WLS Channel 7, found at the end of a Umatic videotape that was mostly recorded over with high school girls' gymnastics home movies from 1977 (boooooo!) and includes:

The ending moments of the Saturday Night Movie presentation (in glorious "pan-and-scan" and quite terrible color - it's not the recording - compare to how the commercials look!) o...

WCIU Channel 26 - The Ginny Tiu Show (Part 1, 1969)

Views: 3044

Here's Part 1 of The Ginny Tiu Show which aired on WCIU Channel 26. Ms. Tiu was a child prodigy pianist whose chief claim to fame was playing by ear and not being able to read a note, and who was a familiar presence on such 1960's TV series as The Ed Sullivan Show, Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall, and a 1966 episode of I've Got a Secret (from Steve Allen's run as host), as well as appearing in the 1962 Elvis Presley film Girls! Girls! Girls! In later years, ...

Harris Bank - Internal Promotional Film (Workprint) (Part 3, 1982)

Views: 3033

Here's the third and final part of something pretty neat and rare - a workprint of an internal promotional film from Harris Bank of Chicago, titled Honesty and Fair Dealing: An Introduction to the Harris Bank and the People Who Make It Work, produced for the company's 100th anniversary in 1982. (although maybe it's just the slightly washed-out and dirty work print, this almost seems like it could be from about 1977 - right down to the funky music. I do know that bank culture always se...

WGN Channel 9 - Garfield Goose And Friends (Break & Ending, 1975)

Views: 2886

Here's a first - the first off-air recording of Garfield Goose and Friends that has ever been found (to my knowledge). Considering the program went off the air in 1976, this is not entirely surprising. (Some apparently erroneous TV listings had it showing again for short periods around 1982, but those have never been shown to be accurate)

This recording was ostensibly made for The Morning Movie presentation of "Sorry, Wrong Number" but luckily for us they started tapin...

WLS Channel 7 - Eyewitness News At 5pm (Part 1, 1978)

Views: 5552

Here's Part 1 of a complete edition of the Eyewitness News at 5pm on WLS Channel 7. This is from a recording of the studio feed, so there are no commercials - instead we get to see some off-the-cuff moments where the anchors are waiting to go back on the air. Features John Drury, Terry Murphy, Bill Frink, Johnny Mountain, Bob Petty, Hugh Hill, and others. This part includes the following stories:

(opening cut slightly - recording starts late) (opening voiceover by ??)
