What TV Looked Like In The 1960s

An episode of the 1960s TV series of Batman has landed on my hard drive. Due to complex rights issues that are still being argued over, this series has never appeared on DVD.

The episode I have was ripped from cable TV to a 240×320 video. When that’s blown up fullscreen on my monitor, it exactly resembles what I saw as a kid way back then. Well, minus the sometimes ghosting!

All of you sitting there with your 42-60” 1080p HDTVs, study this photo to see what you missed!

The video on my hard drive is, of course, in color. But I saw this series in glorious black & white, so I converted the screensnap to that.

You don’t need HD to enjoy something.
