This Saturday: VINTAGE T.V.: THE CASEBOOK OF SHERLOCK HOLMES

"The Golden Age of Television" is a name given to the earliest days of the medium (approximately 1949 to 1960) when American prime time television was largely comprised of dramatic anthology series, and when most Americans switched from radio and cinema to television as their primary entertainment source. Though many modern viewers may consider vintage TV programs to be technically crude and/or thematically simplistic by contemporary standards, the vast majority of shows on the air today still rely on the formulas and genres invented during that era in series such as “The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.”
