Lost Treasures

Show Summary

Since 1962, Steve Sabol has been an employee of NFL Films as a cameraman, an editor, a producer, and now its president. It made him think he knew everything NFL Films had ever shot. But co-worker Phil Tuckett's discovery of an unused film negative, led to the creation of this series. Two years of searching the film vaults has turned up thousands of feet of unseen film footage. Steve Sabol, the host of Lost Treasures of NFL Films, foolishly thought he could produce one 60-minute documentary covering the whole history of NFL Films. In fact, enough material was unearthed to cover five programs, all on the 1960s. And it just expanded from there. In addition to the five-part reflection of NFL Films' beginnings in the 1960s, Lost Treasures of NFL Films unearthed footage of minor-league football, TV football analysts, training camps, and much more. The result totaled 22 episodes spanning four decades, airing on ESPN Classic over a four-year span.

  • Classic sports television series.

    This was a great sports television series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites (Amazon.com and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.moreless
  • Good show; looking at forgotten moments.

    I don't know why people seem to hate this show. I live in the UK, so I've only seen the Lost Treasures DVD set, but it's great to see some of the moments and characters that may have been overlooked in the passage of time.

    I'm looking forward to seeing some lost treasures from the late 80s/early 90s. That was my era. Who remembers the big back craze? Kevin Mack and Christian Okoye. Barry Word was Okoye's back-up. And I'm not a Browns or Chiefs fan!moreless
