"No Deposit, No Return"

Printer-friendly version

The KRON-TV documentary, "No Deposit, No Return", was produced in 1965 as part of the station's Biography Series.  Brisbane Open Space and Ecology Committee Member Michele Salmon brought a DVD copy to Council Member Conway who shared it with city staff.  Upon viewing it, it was seen that the sound and audio quality were not of optimal quality.  Therefore the original 16mm film of "No Deposit, No Return" was traced down to SF State University's TV Archives Dept., and in the able hands of Film Archivist Alex Cherian who had the know-how and tools to digitally restore the 26 minute reel of film.  The result can now be viewed by anyone on the San Francisco Bay Area Television Archive's website by clicking here.  A Community viewing of the film, hosted by the Open Space and Ecology Committee, is being planned for Sunday, May 5th from 3:30pm - 5:30pm.  A discussion and a special presentation from Recology on the current and future state of waste disposal will follow, along with a special feature of rare, historic interview footage.  Bring the whole family and enjoy!
