Ron Simon, curator of television and radio at The Paley Center for Media, discusses the Criterion Collection DVD "The Golden Age of Television," a series organized for PBS in the early 1980s that focused on the hugely popular live American television plays of the 1950s. These shows were thoughtfully choreographed, brilliantly acted, socially progressive, and brought Broadway-quality drama into homes across the country.
