Franquin (TV series)

Franquin was a set of two or three Australian TV specials that aired in 1958 on Melbourne television station HSV-7. Franquin was a hypnotist/entertainer (born Francis Patrick Joseph Quinn, 1914–2010).[1]
Melbourne newspaper The Age called the series “most successful” and that HSV-7 “experienced the most favorable viewer-reaction to the series. The station was inundated with telephone calls and letters”.[2]
It is not known if kinescope recordings exist of either special. Kinescope recording was the method used to record live and as-live television in the days before video-tape, involving recording the television screen image onto 16mm film using special equipment. HSV-7 appears to have not had video-tape equipment until the early 1960s.
