Scope and Content of the Collection

This collection consists of eleven two-inch quad videotapes containing seven discrete programs of The Bing Crosby Show dating from 1959 through 1962. The programs have been digitized and are accessible on DVD.

The recordings contain The Bing Crosby Show as broadcast, and include commercials for products such as Oldsmobile cars, Kodak cameras and Clairol hair products. Some tapes also contain extraneous undated material following the program, such as additional commercials and announcements for upcoming non-Crosby programs.

Of the original videotapes, four have not been reformatted to DVD. One videotape (M89-2/2) contains audio only, of Crosby performing "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling." Four videotapes (M89-2/1, 3, 6, 11) contained the same program, originally broadcast in 1960 and rebroadcast in 1962 with a different sponsor. The videotape collection contains one copy of each of the broadcasts plus two intermediate copies from which the commercials have been edited out, but only M89-2/1 is available for viewing on DVD.
