Boys Costumes Depicted in Television Shows: Alphabetical "Q" Listings

Figure 1.--s.

HBC will list TV series alphabetically here to make them easier to find. TV shows, except for American TV shows, are generally not well know in countries other than in the countries in which they were made. They are also much more current than movies. Almost all TV shows date from the 1950s at the earliest. Costume dramas have the same problems as in the movies, but a great deal of useful information is avialible from TV shows set in contemporary periods. As non-American TV shows are not as widely distributed as movies, often little information is available on these shows outside each country. Movies are often widely distributed in foreign countries. TV shows, with the exceptiion of American programs, are generally not. As an American, we have, for example, never seen German, French, and Italian TV shows. Thus the TV pages provide a much-needed source of information on foreign programing.

(The) Quiz Kids (U.S., 1949-56)

The Quiz Kids were first broad cast in 1949 and run until 1956. The program began un radio during 1940 and then bbrought to television as a local program by WNBQ, Chicago in January 1949. It took NBC only a few months to network it. The format was quite simple. A pannel of four to five youngsters, chosen by an elaborate battery of tests, answered difficult questions. The questions required both general ans specific knowledge. The clothes the boys wore were a good reflection of childrens' fashions. They were almost always formally dressed in suits.
