....and welcome back to the golden days of television! Please take a moment to read these instructions. If you've visited here before, you can go directly to our table of contents.

Shokus Video has been a leader in supplying the video marketplace with vintage 1950s public domain television programming since 1979. Our current library boasts well over 350 hours of classic film and kinescope performances that spotlight the medium when it was brand new and features the big stars of the era! Programs are fully complete except where noted, and many contain the original commercials as broadcast their first time by the networks.

FYI - A kinescope is a recording made of a live TV performance by positioning a 16mm movie camera directly in front of a television monitor. This was the only means of preserving a program prior to the invention of video tape. Thousands of live TV shows produced during the 1950s were not recorded, and many kinescopes have been lost. The quality of these primitive recordings is far inferior to today's high definition pictures, but it is the only record we have of the medium's salad days. Shokus Video was formed to help locate, preserve, and offer these rare shows.
