Springhill Mining Disaster 1958 One of the first major 'ongoing' news stories to be covered live on television was the coal mining disaster in Springhill, Nova Scotia, Canada on October 23, 1958. That night 174 miners were trapped 13,000 feet below ground when a 'bump' caused a huge section of the mine to collapse. It was the third major disaster at the mine since 1891. Exactly 100 miners were rescued; some were trapped for five days before being saved. The bodies of the other 74 were all eventually recovered. Because of the heat at that depth, many of the corpses had badly decomposed by the time they were found. The mine never reopened.

Man Catches Bullet Between His Teeth This clip is an excerpt from an old 50's TV program called 'You Asked For It', a popular human-interest show that originally aired on TV between 1950-59. On the show, viewers were asked to send in postcards describing something that they wanted to see on television, such as the reenactment of William Tell shooting an apple off his son's head. (1950 US National Archery Champion Stan Overby performed the feat, shooting an apple off his assistant's head.) Short film clips were also presented, with the selections based upon viewer requests. As a consequence, many of the clips were presented multiple times. Some of the more popular clips included a tour of the bizarre Winchester Mystery House and the collapse of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. The program was named 'The Art Baker Show', after the series creator and host. In April 1951, the show's title was changed to 'You Asked For It'. Originally airing on the cash-strapped DuMont Network from December 1950 to December 1951, it moved to ABC, where it remained until the end of its original run in September 1959. The show was sponsored by Skippy peanut butter and Studebaker Automobiles. I remember watching this series as a kid, but if I'd seen this show it would have definitely stood out in my memory! No way did this man perform this 'feat', but it sure must have left kids wondering back then..he probably had the bullet already in his mouth and the officer was shooting blanks...duh..I mean..shooting a real bullet almost point blank into a man's face on live tv is going to be messy, to say the least..

Rangers-Canadiens NHL Game 1936 Great vintage sports footage! British Pathe newsreels tended to go far afield to bring viewers interesting activities from around the world. They were present at Madison Square Garden on January 28, 1936 to film an NHL game between the Montreal Canadiens (not Canadians!) versus the New York Rangers. A few things to notice; the absence of the center red line; the players standing sideways to one another on faceoffs; and the way goalies used to hold their sticks before they wore trappers on their catching hands.

Cleveland Barons Here's a sports trivia question to stump your friends: What was the last team in the four major professional sports leagues to fold? Answer: The National Hockey League's Cleveland Barons. The Barons began as the Oakland Seals in 1967. The Seals moved from California to Cleveland in 1976 after nine unsuccessful seasons on the west coast. In Ohio they failed to attract a following in two more unsuccessful seasons. The NHL allowed the Barons to merge with the financially strapped Minnesota North Stars for the 1978-79 season. The Cleveland Barons thus became the first NHL team to fold since 1942.

TVs Worst Sitcom The Trouble With Tracy Canadian television has been responsible for some of the worst sitcoms ever. The nadir is probably The Trouble With Tracy. To satisfy new Canadian content requirements, there were 130 episodes produced for CTV during the 1970-71 season. That's right, 130! It was a daily sitcom set in New York City. Because the episodes came off the production line so quickly and CTV was cash-strapped, quality control was minimal. Flubbed lines often stayed in the shows because retakes were too expensive. Rumor has it that all the master tapes have been destroyed. Here are the opening credits that some masochist recorded.
