Where were you on Tuesday at 8 pm in the early ’50s? Was I Love Lucy a family must-see? How about Sunday at 8 pm? Was Ed Sullivan required viewing for your family? And on Nov. 22, 1963, were you glued to your TV set as the nation mourned together over the assassination of our young president? All these questions and more will be discussed during our trip down memory lane. The instructor will guide you from 1947, the beginning of television, to 1963 and the rise of popular TV shows. Live news broadcasts featuring the early history of television will also be included.
