TV commercials on DVDHistory of Advertising

Product Description:
This 2-DVD set with 17 clips, is an invaluable resource for researchers, librarians, students and historians on the evolution of TV Commercials.

A collector’s item, this 2-DVD set is a must have for all those interested in the birth of Television advertising in the 20th Century Advertising on the radio was well established when television made its debut in the 1940s.

That’s when TV commercials gradually took over from radio commercials. Since then, television commercials have become the most effective, pervasive, and popular method of selling products. The first TV commercial in the United States was broadcast on 1st July, 1941, and aired just before a baseball game. It cost the company just ten dollars to run. Before the advent of the videotape, most television commercials were broadcasted live. However, with advancing technology, commercials would be produced either on film or on tape.

The programming was intended to capture the attention of the audience, keeping viewers glued to the television set After World War II, the pace of life quickened and this was reflected in the TV commercials. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, the average length of a television commercial was one minute. As the years passed, they became 30 seconds long, and today a majority of commercials run in 15-second increments (often known as "hooks"). Most of these clips have been produced by The Jam Handy Company.

The brilliant black & white industrial films for America's giant corporations, such as General Motors, preserve the finest classic image of America available anywhere. The Handy Collection is a testament to the industries & dreams that made America great and the image of the American dream, as interpreted by the Handy films, are truly the dream of products that everyone in America could own, or want to own, at that time.

Massive TV Commercials on DVD setThis set runs around three bucks a disc, for ten hours worth of programming. That sounds to me like a pretty decent bargain. So what if they're 'downloadable' from another website? I actually have a job, so I don't have time to sit and burn blank DVDs that would cost more than this set did to begin with.

The 'wow' factor, or the "I had one of those" phrase comes to mind quite often, especially in the disc involving toy commercials. In addition to the toy disc, you get a disc of cigarette commercials, celebrity commercials, a 'miscellaneous' disc, a disc of car commercials, and a disc of food and beverage commercials.

TV CommercialsProduct Description:
It is difficult to imagine life without a TV and even more difficult to have a TV program without a "commercial break."

Every program, every channel spices up viewing time with TV ads as never before. It is a ‘win-win" situation for the TV channel, for the company sponsoring the ad and the ad agency and often for the viewer as well.

When TV commercials were first introduced, there was a novel quality about them. They introduced you directly to the products and explained their use and functioning.

The audience was captivated by the information provided, which was cleverly designed to whet one’s appetite, and those "hooked" went out to buy.

Presented in this 2-DVD set are 40 TV commercials, which make this a veritable bounty for the adman, student or professional dealing with advertising, for it takes one through the pages of advertising history. By knowing the past one builds a solid foundation for the future and I am convinced that anybody who owns and examines the rare clips on this DVD will be suitably rewarded.
