The TV on Film Project: before the medium became the message, it was on film
Two rare films are on display today: CBS's 1972 "Have We Got a Fall for You" Fall Preview reel, featuring clips from M*A*S*H, Maude, The Bob Newhart Show and The Waltons, among their many hits that season. The second half hour is a 1961 network print of The Dick Van Dyke Show, complete with the original commercials and sponsor tags. All in glorious 16mm. Full report here later plus news on a new Canadian TV heritage initiative.
