An unsold sitcom pilot from 1950. Starring Joan Davis.  Note: this is a re-upload. I'm hoping this version has improved picture quality, but make no mistake, the picture quality is still very poor.

A promo for ''Emergency Ward 10'', a British television series which aired from 1957 to 1967 on the ITV network. I might be mistaken, but I believe this promo was made to promote the series in Australia  (it was announced in mid-1964 newspapers that the series would start being shown there).
