Could you help me find videos for a TV shows?
If you need to find out where you can purchase a particular video of an old TV
program, I suggest that you do a keyword search on a search engine like
Google. The video may be available from a variety of sources like
Blockbuster Videos. A good site to find information
about distributors of video is the Timelapse.com
website under their "Video
Distributors" Section. Also check out these video sites:

get asked if I can appraise some piece of memorabilia, like a Jolly Green

Can you help me find video or film from a TV show on which I once
appeared as a child? The problem with this question is that many
TV stations regularly reused their video tapes to save the cost of buying new
ones. Because of this practice, many old TV shows were erased in the name of
cost saving. For example, almost all of Soupy Sales early episodes were erased
in a similar manner. Because of this industry practice, many episodes of local
TV shows and children's programs are no longer in existence. The only thing I
can suggest is to check with the local TV stations to see if there is any
footage of the show in their archives. You might also check local universities
to see if their media programs or special collection might have related
materials. You can also place an ad in the local newspaper on the chance that
someone made home movies of the event you seek. See alsoTV Resources
for Museums that might also have this sort of materials in their holdings.
How did TV Acres come about?
All the material found in this database is the product of over 25 years of
research. Initially, the information in the TV ACRES web site was to be part
of a book entitled: The TV Encyclopedia: The Channel Surfer's Guide to
Television Program Facts, Themes and Trivia - 1947 to the Present.
However, the project became so large (1500 pages and 5 volumes) that the
author of the site, Jerome Holst, decided to transfer all the information into
a website. This would allow the project to expand in size easily, and to be
quickly updated. After procuring the website domain name TV ACRES, all the
information was edited into web pages. In October, 2000, the site hit the web.
Since then, TV Acres has become a popular website for finding all sorts of TV
Facts and Trivia.
TRIVIA NOTE: The TV Acres website is a labor of love. It is distributed to the world
free of charge as a gift to TV viewers everywhere. As long as it is
financially feasible, TV Acres will stay on the Internet and will be updated
with new and exciting TV facts. TV Acres is written and updated by Jerome A. Holst, Librarian and website owner.
