Television programs of 1978
This 9-minute segment of CBS' 50th anniversary television special introduces the celebrities associated with that network. Back in 1978 I had just moved to Kentucky and started a new job; there was no internet and there were no personal computers, and cable TV was in its infancy, so we had time to watch television.
I kept track during this video and discovered I could remember over half of the 100+ personalities showcased. If an equivalent video were shown with 2010 programs, I'd probably recognize less than 10% (unless it was the Weather Channel).
Found at the ever-interesting Miss C Recommends, where those of you younger than me may find more familiarity in the equivalent program for NBC from 1986.
