This Is Your Life, which was broadcast from 1952 to 1961, is one of the best remembered television series from the 1950s. The format of This is Your Life was based on the rather simple principle--guests were surprised with a presentation of their past life in the form of a narrative read by host Ralph Edwards and reminisces by relatives and friends. But the format was also quite shrewd in its exploitation of television's capacity for forging intimacy with viewers through live transmission and on-air displays of sentimentality.

I heard about this show while listening to NPR one day.... I'm trying to track down individual episodes (and I'll edit them into this post).

In particular, I'm looking for the episode with the concentration camp survivor and the episode with the nuclear bomb survivors from Japan (episode 141)...

What are your takes on these people and this show? Do you think this type of show would do good in today's media, or do you think it'd just turn into a s**t-throwing match?

Laurel and Hardy episode (comedians)

Archive with episodes of Samuel Fuqua (pearl harbor survivor),Boris Karloff (actor), d**k Clark, Jesse Owens, Jayne Mansfield, Hanna Bloch Kohner (holocaust survivor), and Lauren and Hardey episode again.

.... sad or frown This is the only thing I can find on the Hiroshima episode.
