Scope and content

Television commercials. Four print or kinescope selections of television commercials promoting electrical services and appliances, "Medallion" homes, "Housepower" wiring, natural gas heating, the BC Hydro heating advisory service, etc. Some ads may have been produced in BC while others were clearly produced elsewhere; most contain some reference to BC Hydro, either through an end credit or in the voice-over narration. It is not always clear whether this reference was part of the original production or was simply added to a stock commercial supplied by a service.
