Thank you, Jeice! My schedule is a little busy, right now. However, I'm anxious to be able to settle in to watch some old "faves," as well as some that I don't recall.

A very rare broadcast from 26 February 1948:

The sets are laughable, but there are priceless moments throughout the broadcast, such as the weather forecast at the end, the interview with the inventor, and the closing featuring the clouds.

I am amazed that the uploader managed to get a copy to upload.

"Your Show Time", anthology series, this episode is a rarely seen adaptation of Sherlock Holmes:

It is likely the earliest extant TELEVISION adaptation of a Sherlock Holmes story.
