Television Part of the 2017 UCLA Festival of Preservation

The 2017 UCLA Festival of Preservation kicks off this Friday (March 3rd). The programming slate skews heavily toward feature films. But television is represented as well. The festival includes seven TV programs spread across three nights. Local California television is well represented with four different programs. There’s also a CBS children’s program from 1975, a 1976 PBS drama, and an installment of syndicated anthology series The Play of the Week from 1960.
