"If RCA was the Apple of its day, one could say Camden was the Cupertino." - Kevin Riordan, Philly News

This film from RCA Corporation is full of vintage goodness showing television manufacturing in America. There are many great shots of old vacuum tubes, televisions, electronics equipment, women wearing vintage dresses, and men wearing dapper suits with awesome horn-rimmed glasses and bow ties!

The beautiful vintage cabinets we admire today were made by master craftsmen with high quality mahogany wood, sealed by up to 12 coats of lacquer!

There are great scenes from RCA Corporation's old manufacturing facility in the Cherry Hill Laboratories near Camden, New Jersey; the RCA Tube Manufacturing Plant in Harrison, New Jersey; the RCA Lancaster Tube Plant (now the Burle Business Park) in Lancaster, Pennsylvania; and the RCA plant in Bloomington, Indiana.

RCA Victor Television Division presents, "The Reasons Why". RCA: dependable, reliable, quality! Yes - year after year, RCA Victor quality has been steadily improved by the experience and know-how that come from building more than 10 million TV sets!

With RCA Victor, quality is more than a philosophy - a way of thinking. It's a way of working. And it begins on a research and design drawing board.

Why do more people like it?
Why do more people want it?
Why do more people buy it than any other TV?
Well... the tubes are connected to the chassis,
The chassis' connected to the picture tube,
The picture tube's connected to the TV dial,
The TV dial's connected to the cabinet,
And the name goes on right here!
