WELCOME! Here at Oldtimetv, I collect 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. With time permitting I also restore and specialise in tracking down old time radio, TV shows and old movies from the UK, the US, Canada and Australia. As a collector for over 40 years and with over 155,000 radio shows and 65,000 TV shows and old time movies in my collection I hope you enjoy your stay and don't forget to keep coming back for updates on rarities from the golden age of yesteryear. If you don't see the rare show or movie you are after just email me and i'll try and point you in the right direction
PLEASE READ BEFORE ASKING TO TRADE OR PURCHASE
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 swap would you sell a copy of a certain show or series to me?"
The answer is, it depends 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 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 (swapping material) 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 or are now deleted or discontinued.
Please limit the number of discs asked for at one time to no more than 8-10 discs unless they are in a set. If uncertain about number of discs asking for please don't list more than a three shows in your email as due to my circumstances and the number of requests I get I won't have time to answer. Please also note we can't always keep track of all commercial releases but we do check regularly, however if anyone knowingly tries to purchase from us a show that is currently commercially available and it is brought to our attention we will not deal with that person again.
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.
