Interested animated instructional film detailing electronic communications in the early part of the century. Interestingly enough, the popular vocational school DeVry claims that they began as a school in 1931, with no mention of the production of these informational films as early as (in the case of this film) 1928. 0616 PA8110 History of Communication

Very early television series from 1949, aired locally in Los Angeles. A pop music show featuring talented performers. A bit stilted, but not bad given the limitations of early live local television. Contains the original commercials. (per the reviewer, I have changed the date in the title).
