THE WIZARD OF OZ
November 23, 2014  | By David Bianculli

TBS, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
This is one of the video snippets in my current Personal Theory of TV Evolution exhibit at the apexart gallery in New York’s TriBeCa – in a display about the earliest TV programming I can remember. Except, back then, the entire 1939 movie was in black and white, at least to me, because, as a young kid, I was watching on my family’s black-and-white TV set. Back then, you had  to wait a year for Oz to show up on television. Now you can watch it any time, on your own DVD – but it’s still worth mentioning whenever it’s shown on television. So here it is… 58 years after it was broadcast the first time.
