Membership Card - HSV Channel 7, Children's Club, John Young, 1957 Document Reg. No: HT 36238

Printed and handwritten card.

It was issued in 1957 by HSV Channel 7 to viewers of `The Judy Jack Show' to signify their membership in the station's Children's Club. It is hand signed by Judy Jack and features her photograph in a stylised television screen.

Produced at the station's studios in South Melbourne, it is notable as the first children's program to screen on Melbourne television. It ran from September 1956 until late 1957, when it was replaced by `Young Seven'. Unfortunately, as it was broadcast live, no footage remains of the show.
