An episode of "Ding Dong School", a popular pre-schoolers series. Year unknown (I'm looking into this). A previous episode (from 1953) has also been uploaded. This episode is infamous for the sandwich made by Miss Frances, containing peanut butter, lettuce, and banana.

This is a extremely rare Kids show from the early 50's called "The Magic Clown", with Bonomo Candy being plugged 1,446,234 times. Most certainly not "Quality TV", But certainly better than "Jerry Springer".

1955 commercial for a product called "Wizard Wick", designed to remove unpleasant smells like tobacco, fish, onions and cabbage from someones house. This is a very low budget commercial as it aired during daytime (hence, also, why it makes such emphasis on the woman of the house). (note: as of 25 July 2014 the files have been changed...hopefully the picture quality will be better now)

A slightly unusual 1967 commercial for the oddly-named "Life" cereal. The color is badly faded, though. An example of a 1960s commercial aimed at females.

I probably got the title of the episode wrong. Here is another episode of "The Trouble with Father". In this episode, June starts to get a bit vain, so Stu and his friend decide to take them for hours at a fairground and more hours of dancing at a teen-hangout. All involved quickly regret it all. I alledge this episode runs between 30 seconds and 75 seconds too short.

Another misc episode of the 50's TV series "You Asked For It", featuring a diver and an octopus, a theremin player, special effects demonstations, among others. As this TV series could never be broadcast again, it may be considered "ephemeral TV". This was originally broadcast sometime between 1950 and 1959.

An old commercial, probably from 1965, for a skin cleanser called "Noxzema". This commercial is as average as a mid-1960's commercial can get. In other words, a standard, ordidary, run-of-the-mill skin-care commercial. Nothing special. At all.

Failed pilot for a proposed British Sherlock Holmes series starring John Longdon (Hitchcock's "Blackmail" and "The Skin Game") as Sherlock Holmes. Campbell Singer plays Dr Watson and the episode also features Walter Gotell (70s and 80s Bond pictures) as Luzatto. The story is based on the canonical adventure "The Man With The Twisted Lip".
