Boys Costumes Depicted in Television Shows: Alphabetical Listings--Unknown Programs

Figure 1.--This British television show depicts the puff sleeves that were worn in the Regency period.

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.

Unknown show

An English HBC contributor noted the puff sleeves depicted in a British television program. He think that the puff sleeves are especially interesting on this garment. Similar to the exaggerated puff sleeves at the shoulders of various Regency period garments. Sleeve styles are a topic not yet well addressed in HBC, but are one of the many topics requiring further attention.

Sitcom set in the west about a city slicker who wanted to go West, but has no real skills. His wife is an equally incompetent, a real Southern bell. The boy is a little too sarcastic, but a nice kid, the same boy who later played on "Time Travelers".
