Appendix Five: UCLA

The following is a list of DuMont programs which are known to exist in the UCLA Film and Television Archive, painstakingly compiled by the author by searching for individual DuMont program titles in UCLA's online database. UCLA claims over 300 DuMont titles in its collection; this page lists 314. It is possible, however, that some DuMont programs may have been overlooked by the author or that UCLA may have misidentified some programs, so this list cannot be considered definitive.

This is a listing of network programs only, and does not include those which are known to be only local programs (e.g. airing on DuMont's WABD-TV in New York City). Where doubt exists, air dates have been used as the basis for verifying DuMont network programs, although the air dates listed by UCLA have not been confirmed by any other source. The exact air dates and program titles are included below, where known. In time, more details of each program may be added.

The author has provided this list as a reference to assist in documenting those DuMont programs which have survived and are accessible to the public. You can use the University of California system’s MELVYL catalog to search for other DuMont titles, or E-mail the author if you have any additions or corrections.
