What is the first memory you have of TV?

for me - one of my earliest memories of TV would be watching Sarah Platt on Corrie getting kidnapped in 2001.

My mom and I were at her friend's house, and I was sitting on the floor in front of the TV as they talked. I recall watching a sailboat explode on the TV. My mom and her friend were shocked and awestruck. I was only about four years old, so I thought real people (obviously friends of my mother's, given how they were reacting) had just gotten blown up, and I got so upset that I started crying. My mom had to calm me down.

It was only later in life that I pieced together what I had seen: Adam and Nicole Drake's sailboat on The Edge of Night had exploded. It turned out to be one of the show's most memorable moments because the Drakes were one of the show's favorite couples. But I remember it only because of the reactions of the adults in the room when I was just a child.

Probably "What's My Line?" It ran from 1950-1954. I would have been six years old in 1954, and my parents loved this show. Every Sunday night, they'd watch it. (Man, I'm older than dirt!)

As a kid watching Kukla Fran and Ollie, a children's show on a small black & white tv in rural Ohio around 1950.
