The Bell Telephone Hour, 1959

My apologies for the relative silence this week - remarkably, I've been spending more time celebrating Christmas than I have blogging.  And I don't feel one bit guilty about it.

Perhaps I should have posted this earlier, but here's a glimpse of what we were watching on Christmas Eve - from the archives of the Bell Telephone Hour, which was one of NBC's classiest shows from 1958 to 1969.  A highlight of each season was the annual Christmas show, often broadcast live, featuring the best in classical and Broadway artists.  I've mentioned the program several times in past Christmas posts; here's a chance to see for yourself the beauty of the program - the beauty of the kind of television that appears all but lost.


And on that subject - television that's been lost and can't be found - I'll have more to say tomorrow.  In the meantime, a belated Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
