    Neva Patterson is best recalled in my personal memory as a secretary to a state governor in the brief, late-1960’s TV series, The Governor and J.J., which starred Dan Dailey. It is such a shame that there are so many scores of entertaining but now lesser known/recalled TV series of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s that are not available on DVD – and that probably never will be made available to the public again in any form. Sure, many of the major TV series like I love Lucy and Leave It To Beaver are available but most of the couple hundreds of others are not. That pool of relatively early TV series is a vast, largely untapped treasure of family entertainment that is gradually being lost. It is a regretable loss of part of our collective heritage that could easily and inexpensively be marketed via the Internet. One would think that those who own the rights to the lesser known series from TV’s first couple of decades would want to make some money off of them before most of the people who remember them are dead.
