A 1965 U.S. commercial for Supp-Hose, a brand of stockings. Please forgive me, as my copy is in black-and-white (I don't have the colour version). Picture quality not up to my usual standards.

Taped off the Australian version of the channel on 6 January 2009. This comes from a kind of tape I used to do a lot of during late-2008/early-2009, where I'd put the VCR on long-play and try to record as many different channels as possible.

A collection of US commercials for products you can no longer buy. Forgive me if there's any mistakes. Sometimes the brand is still around but the exact product is gone (such as with "Futurama" lipstick by Revlon), sometimes both the product and brand are gone (such as with "Tip Toni"). Some only exist in-name-only, while at least one product is no longer available in the US but is still sold in another country. The commercials are mainly from the 1950s, along with some from...

A very short bit of filler from 1968. Produced by or for Britain's Central Office of Information (COI). Features no narration, just footage of 1960s female fashion with music accompaniment.  I'm not completely certain, but I believe this is an example of one of the bits of filler the COI produced to fill in gaps in the schedules of TV channels. The COI did literally hundreds of such fillers over the years.
