A classic (?) commercial for Litter Green, a brand of kitty litter. The commercial is rather emotional. I took this from a disc I bought from a seller on some dubious website...but judging by the compression, I am kinda worried about where they got it from. I hope this wasn't stolen from YouTube.

An episode of the Australian pop music series. This episode departs from the usual format of the show, and consists of a live concert by American folk group Peter, Paul & Mary that was recorded at Festival Hall in Melbourne.   Although originally recorded on videotape, the surviving copy is a kinescope.  Before anyone asks, no, I don't have the rest of the concert.

Episode also includes a segment where Brian reads light-hearted news stories.   Note: The final 15 minutes of this episode is taken up by a period costume segment....which I thought was cool, but may seem strange to others.

Wilder, Lonnie Lee, Andy Ellis, Patsy Ann Noble, and Tim Gaunt.  Note: This was Patsy Ann Noble's final appearance on this show, and some of her appearance is missing from this copy. A single original commercial is intact.   Can anyone determine the broadcast date? EDIT: This episode has a page on IMDb:  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8811212/

This was originally shown in cinemas back in 1947, but I upload this to my section because my copy is a later television re-issue copy.  Unfortunately, my copy suffers from an annoying watermark during the opening credits.

A 1976 British commercial for Mothercare stores, taped off station LWT by actor Reg Varney (he doesn't appear in the commercial, but was taping a show he appeared in).  Taped during the episode "The Green Eyed Monster" of sitcom "Down the 'Gate", transmitted 29 August 1976. This commercial aired just before the episode started.  NOTE: The original description of this item featured errors, which I've corrected.

A delightful and well-produced 1956 commercial for Tareyton cigarettes. Judging by this and the commercials I've seen for Lucky Strike, it seems that the "American Tobacco Company" had a very good advertising agency....

Hmm. A 1956 commercial for Revlon "Futurama" lipstick containers. Hmm. Picture quality is poor. Hmm.

A 1958 commercial for the 1958 Buick. A very silly commercial.

A 1960 production slate, as used by ABC, a British commercial station which existed from 1956 to 1968, and which has no connection to the American and Australian networks with the same initials. This is a VTR slate, but as you can see, the surviving copy is a kinescope (known as a telerecording in the UK).  Note: I have no idea as to the copyright status of this footage.

A vintage trailer for the 1960 movie "G.I. Blues", a light musical starring Elvis Presley and Juliet Prowse, Produced by Hal Davis, and directed by Norman Taurog. Please forgive the uneven picture quality.
