Get ready to revisit the past! Decades Network is planning to dig into the vaults of television to show off some lesser known classic series. These includes shows like My Little Margie, Topper, and Trouble with Father.
Decades revealed more about the “Lost TV” event in a press release. Check that out below.
“Classic television is dominated by TV’s enduring hits and cult sensations that have resonated with audiences for, well, decades. No surprise, they’re hits. What about the hidden treasures? Less well known, but just as fascinating, are the many TV shows that aired only briefly or left syndication years ago, seemingly being lost to time. Beginning Monday, October 2, DECADES ventures deep into the television vault to present “Lost TV,” rarely seen TV gems and lesser known series that time forgot. “Lost TV” airs Monday through Friday from 2:00pm to 4:00 pm ET, with encore airings at 1:00 am to 3:00 am ET. Each weekend DECADES will offer a continuous two-day binge of “Lost TV” beginning Saturday at 1:00 pm ET.
“So much of early television was literally lost – presented live or via kinescope, or discarded due to storage concerns. And yet, there remains a treasure trove of interesting entertainment that has been physically preserved, but lost in the public consciousness. Some seem remarkably timeless, while others are fascinating artifacts of our popular culture past. Either way, they make for great television viewing. DECADES is proud to introduce viewers to some of these fantastic finds from the vaults with “Lost TV,” said Neal Sabin, Vice Chairman of Weigel Broadcasting Co.
