Comments about PBS Pioneers of Primetime DVD:

For those of us old enough to remember Television in the 1950s, this series will bring back a lot of memories. If you are even slightly interested in Television History, buy this entire series. You will learn a lot!

Thoroughly enjoyed this program

By Scooter

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about PBS Pioneers of Primetime DVD:

Growing up in the 60's, we used to watch TV as a family, much like the evening gathering around the radio of the era my parents grew up in. Although much of the program relating to Vaudeville and radio was before my time, there was a constant and consistent transition to the early days of television that tied it all together well. More than anything, it brought back many fond memories of my youth and thinking how much my mother would enjoy this. So I'm sending it to her.
