This episode is hosted by Ronald Reagan, and the G.E. sponsor breaks, themed "living better...electrically", are presented by Bill Goodwin. Produced by Sid Luft.

The second show of the compilation is episode #4 of The Liberace Show. The flamboyant pianist performs several songs. While the show breaks for commercials, the commercials are not on the tapes. Produced by Lou is B. Snader; directed by Duke Goldstone.

The third show of the compilation is This is Your Life – Laurel & Hardy. The lives of the classic slapstick team are reviewed through stories told by their long-time friends, including film director Leo McCarey and actress Vivian Blaine. No credits appear for this episode. The fourth and last show of the compilation is Molly (AKA “The Goldbergs”). Molly is a 1950’s sitcom about a Jewish family living in the suburbs. In this episode Molly awaits a visit from a friend from the old neighborhood. Produced by William Berke; directed by Marc Daniels; written by Gertrude Berg.
