Silent Service Tapes - TV Series Tapes

Nautilus, Seaview, and more

Postby jaschwink » Mon Aug 15, 2005 11:19 am

In the Review Section of the Sub Committee website, there is a review of a VHS tape of the old TV series "The Silent Service." It reports that the tape is available from John Clear and gives a web address. I cannot find John Clear in the most recent Directory, nor can I get to the website given.

Can anyone please put me in touch with Mr. Clear, give me an updated address, or advise on how I might obtain a copiy of the tape. Thanks.

The History Channel does have CD's and VHS tapes called "The Silent Service," but those are not the ones showing the original TV sevies hosted by Rear Admiral Thomas M. Dykers (Ret.). I am looking for the circa 1957 shows, I believe in half hour segments, that were a series. The description in the Review is what I want, probably from John Clear, whoever he is and wherever he may be........

IIRC. the VHS tapes from John Clear were available back about 3-4 years ago. By his own admission, these were NOT top quality tapes, they were transfers from old UHF broadcasts which were apparently kinetoscope captures (a movie camera aimed at the TV screen and synched up). He mentioned that some had a fair amount of "snow".

The ultimate goal is to "liberate" the original film versions from the vaults at CBS (?? or was it NBC) and get a top quality transfer to DVD. There have been various letter writing attempts at accomplishing this, but without success.

Or, in keeping with my reputation for being able to locate the most obscure facts and details, you can click on the accompanying web link to the ordering site from John Clear.

Geez, I'm getting real good at this.....

Tom,

Thank you for the information. Maybe a little research is in order to try for ultimate liberation........

Hello! My dad worked on the series "silent service" in Long Beach Ca.
Does anyone know what boat(s) were used in the filming of those episodes.
Thanks,
Harry
