WELCOME! Here at Oldtimetv, I trade and restore old time TV shows and old movies on DVD with many of the shows and movies on offer being either very rare, lost, deleted or discontinued.

If you don't see the rare show or movie you are after just email me.
PLEASE READ BEFORE ASKING TO TRADE
Here at oldtimetv you'll find hundreds of old time TV shows, series and old time movies added to the web site
at intervals throughout the year, the majority commercial free but some with the original commercials intact. Before you start looking around the website there are a couple of points I'd just like to bring to your attention.
First, the one question Im asked most...........
“If I haven’t anything to trade would you sell a copy of a certain show or series to me?"
The answer is, yes , if I have the show or series available and it hasn’t had a commercial release. But you must realise this is not a business, it's a hobby just like stamp collecting, and remember, just as old stamps aren't mint, old, rare shows aren't going to be of the same quality as your blockbuster commercial big hit movie from Amazon. I am a collector, trader, and restorer of Old Time TV and Radio and personally would rather have a poor copy of a really rare show than no show at all. The buzz of then trying to improve the quality of that show using the PC software we have available today is one of the best feelings in the world. Sad? Maybe, but each to his own.
The second thing I'm asked quite regularly is "Why no prices on the web site?", again simple, as I say in the previous question we are not a business, we are out to help people locate that long lost show from yesterday, whether it be a movie, documentary or an appearance someone might have made on a game show. I have heard from hundreds of dedicated collectors over the years and many celebrities with regard old shows they once appeared in and asked if I could locate it for them, and many times I've been successful. After saying that it works both ways I myself in years gone by have contacted some really excellent TV show collectors and paid silly money for long lost gems, sometimes one rare episode of a lost series can go for anywhere up to $150 (£100),which in my mind is totally ludicrous but as I said before "each to his own".
Now on the topic of trading, please don’t offer or send me listings of anything available commercially, I'm ONLY in search of shows and interested in rare TV and Movies that have never been released.
Please limit the number of discs asked for in a trade to around 10 discs. Due to my circumstances I don't have time to do more in one go so if it takes me a while to get around to you I'm sorry.
Also please note we will not sell to businesses who are selling DVD's on the internet.
Well thanks for listening and enjoy your visit around OLDTIMETV the best TV & Movie Collectors Website on the Net.
ENJOY YOUR VISIT AND THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.
