    My day...January 1 1965...Couldn't google up a video, but this is significant.
    Week of January 1, 1965: Actor Ronald Reagan announces his candidacy for the Republican gubernatorial nomination in California

    BTW...Cool thread, and I grew up on all those commercials @bchaffin72

    those are great everything cost two bucks! I don't remember any of the ads' but do remember the Sonny and Cher show
    I picked this one for '67 cause it has Diana Rigg on the frame shot, sexiest women on television, at 1:32 is a cool Carol Shelby Mustang commercial and another Mustang one at 3:32

    Scorpios of the world unite, the revolution is nigh!!:D

    I actually do remember several of those ads that were still running when I was old enough to pay attention to and remember what I was seeing on TV.

    Arby's, Ajax, Endust, Leggs, and Spic and Span, specifically.

    And I remember The Waltons quite well.

    We didn't have TV when I was born! We got one in 1953 to watch the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, in black and white. It was incredible!
    And of course, no adverts on the single BBC channel! :D

    In the fifties, the hours people watched television were tightly controlled - the 24 hour broadcasting of today was unheard of. The Postmaster General stipulated how many hours of television could be shown each week. In 1956, for example, the BBC was allowed to broadcast television on weekdays between 9am and 11pm, with not more than 2 hours before 1pm. There was also a period between 6pm and 7pm when no television was broadcast. This period was used by parents to trick young children into thinking that the evening's television had finished so they would go to bed without complaint - it was known as the 'toddlers' truce' -imagine that today! At the weekends, the rules were no more relaxed. A maximum of eight hours broadcasting was allowed on Saturdays and 7 3/4 hours on Sunday. On Sunday another anachronism reigned - television shown between 2pm and 4pm was intended for adults - children were meant to be at Sunday School! Gradually the rules on broadcasting hours were made less strict. The 'toddlers' truce', for example, was dropped in 1957.

    I was also born in ‘72, looked for commercials for that date but couldn’t find any. Can’t imagine they’d be all that different than OP’s.

    Nice!!

    Nothing quite like that by the time I was a kid, but I do remember only 3 channels, sometimes 4, if you could get that damn PBS to come in:D. And all the stations being off the air for a certain number of hours overnight.

    I think the ads in 48 were small.

    Well, here's one that will REALLY show you how much times have changed.



    Of course, the show was originally marketed towards adults, not children. And, unsurprisingly, partly sponsored by Winston themselves.
