An outstanding Christmas episode of the AMC gem, "Remember WENN," a series set at a small radio station in Pittsburgh the 1940s. Video quality is nothing much, but the clever writing and wonderful audio make up for it:
I thought it was one of the best shows on television -- and it vanished with barely a trace after a few seasons.
(Cynics will point out that I may be a wee bit prejudiced towards liking this series; after all, the young heroine is a writer, she's from Indiana, and she's working in radio during the Golden Age. They're probably right.)
