This is a rare example of a 1940s television broadcast still surviving in it's entirety. In the 1940s most television was broadcast live and as videotape recording technology did not exist until approx. 1958 this is a telecine recording (a film camera pointed at a television monitor filming the broadcast). It was a crude method but the only way of making a copy of a live broadcast for several years during the earliest days of television.
