According to David Crosthwait of DC Video, the company that restored this videotape, this specific episode of Startime
(1959) was taped at the then-NBC studio in Brooklyn, NY, and hand-edited. Color videotape was in its infancy; only about a year previous to this  the first color videotapes were recorded at NBC. The copy was a dub found at NBC. The tapes used proprietary electronics unique to NBC, which is one reason why restoration took time. The tape was missing part of its audio. The Lewis family donated a kinescope film copy of the show, along with a 1/4" audio tape of much of the show's soundtrack to finish the restoration. See more
