WFLD Channel 32 - Keyfax Nite-Owl Service - "Episode Two!" (Opening, 1981)

Views: 3082

Hallelujah! A new (though relatively tiny) example of Nite-Owl on WFLD Channel 32 has been found! A truly rare find, indeed.

In fact, this is the first new "proper" footage of Nite-Owl discovered in about 6 years! (Even a couple tiny bleed-through excerpts were only found as recently as 4 years ago.) And what a clip! This one stands to rewrite the history of when Nite-Owl began, since all evidence before this seemed to point to the starting date as being early Mo...

Way to Go! Special (Part 3, 1980)

Views: 1668

Here is Part 3 of the Field Communications produced Way to Go! Special - an hour long (compilation?) showcase of some special kids and what they do. Has a lot of nice little slices of late seventies life as a kid. :-) The tape was dated May of 1980. My contact says that only a few of these "Specials" were made. Like I said, I'm not sure if these were compilations of segments shown on the regular Way to Go program, or if they were specifically produced for these specials. I am pretty sure thi...
