It’s the height of idiocy to put up a site like this. There are millions of channels on YouTube devoted to 50s TV. Why bother?
Good question. For one thing, all those sites could disappear tomorrow. There’s no guarantee anything will abide. We might have some assurance if the Library of Congress spend some money to preserve these cultural assets, but alas.
The other reason for this site: personal selection. Not just some stuff tossed up BECAUSE IT’S VINTAGE. Some are YouTube clips; others are from my own collection. (Provenance forgotten, alas.)
There’s not much, since this site is new to 2021. No matter; there’s always YouTube!
