Views: 1423

Here's the opening, preview breaks and ending moments of an episode of the TV series Hunter.

And no, folks, this is not the 1984-91 series on NBC (and thus, seen by Chicagoans on WMAQ Channel 5) with Fred Dryer and Stepfanie Kramer, but a virtually forgotten, short-lived series - "A Lorimar Production" (the company famous at the time for The Waltons and, later, for Dallas and Knots Landing) - that ran on the CBS Network and therefore aired in Chica...

Views: 2970

The transfer of this video clip made possible by your generous donations!

This is a tremendous find - not only do we have another (mostly) complete Chicago Emmy Awards telecast - this one from the 70s - as part of the 20th Anniversary they decided to have a retrospective of the local TV stations! So we get to see some footage, slides and pictures, which apparently at this point in 1978 were not yet thrown out or forgotten by the TV stations. (Some of the clips or bu...
