Invitation - HSV Channel 7, Judy Jacks Show to John Young, 1957 Document Reg. No: HT 36239

Small printed and handwritten card contained in a handwritten envelope.

It is from Melbourne television personality Judy Jack, who hosted `The Judy Jack Show' on HSV Channel 7. It is written to a boy inviting him to attend a live broadcast of the program.

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.
