The Television

In the 1950s the television came out. The first television was black and white. The television shows that came on were only on for 30 mins a day. Everyone that owned a T.V had a guide of how long they could watch television because everyone got a certain amount of it per day. Some of the television shows that were on were The Mickey Mouse Club, I Love Lucy, and the Howdy show.

The Video Cassette Recorder

The Video Cassette Recorder was invented in 1956. The Video Cassette Recorder is basically a VCR. The primary function of this VCR was recording, playing videos, and audio signals. This source of technology was not affordable by most house holds because it was expensive. It was also the most popular VCR of that time period.
