Description: The Days of Live is a fascinating account of the era of live television. This brief period in the long history of entertainment glistened for approximately ten years, from shortly after World War II until the end of the 1950s, when the advent of video tape & the ascendancy of film programming caused it to fade into oblivion. Compiled from the first-hand accounts of twenty-one members of the Directors Guild of America who were instrumental in shaping the medium during this formative phase, the book covers the development of network programming, technical advances, sponsor relations, & the blacklist. The Days of Live describes the transition from black-&-white to color, & documents early landmark series such as Philco Television Playhouse, Studio One, Kraft Television Theatre, Hallmark Hall of Fame, Climax, Producers Showcase, & Playhouse 90. It includes personal, detailed, & often hilariously funny stories of television during its awkward infancy & the men & women who struggled to popularize & standardize its procedures. This lively volume is the perfect way to learn about the history & atmosphere of the epoch of live television.
