MPT Turns 50: "Consumer Survival Kit: Used Cars" clip, 1975

Copy the text below to embed this resource

"Consumer Survival Kit" (1973-1979) provided MPT viewers with consumer information in a unique way: Host Lary Lewman relied on comedy skits, song and dance, and an impressive roster of visiting celebrities to deliver information on each program’s topic. Rita Moreno, Joan Rivers, Alan Alda, and Victor Borge were among the dozens who appeared, and at the end of each program an actual kit (booklet) was offered to viewers. This clip was featured in the 50th anniversary exhibit, "Made Possible By Viewers Like You: Maryland Public Television Turns 50" in the Hornbake Library Maryland Room Gallery in 2019.
