Does KCOP or any station still use 16mm telecine?
RTV runs Ozzie & Harriet
from crummy 16mm prints, chopped up at the beginning
and at the end (I'm sure it's to remove original sponsorships).
Apparently these are "public domain" episodes of Oz
. I've read where one of the
Nelsons third generation is spearheading an attempt to get all 435(?) episodes
remastered from the 35mm film masters to digital.
There are a number of Oz
episodes on YouTube. While they seem to be 16mm, they
also seem to be more intact (with the original sponsors). These may have been the
prints sent out by ABC to "non-interconnected" stations during the original run.
