About the Free Videos
All videos embedded for viewing are assumed to be public domain and/or freely-distributable.
The video files themselves are stored at, maintained by, and served from
the Internet Archive at its Moving Image Library Classic TV Sub-Collection.
Internet Archive encourages video embedding of digital artifacts stored at the Library.
Like the Great Library of Alexandria their mission is to catalog the world's information.
In addition, Internet Archive wishes to make their content freely available to all:
"The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library. Its purposes include offering permanent access for researchers, historians, scholars, people with disabilities, and the general public to historical collections that exist in digital format."
Note: Internet Archive also allows – and encourages! – downloading its digital video files.

Internet Archive accepts donations.
About the RerunCentury.com Interface
RerunCentury.com has curated and built this directory of the freely-watchable public domain television episodes uploaded to the Internet Archive Classic TV collection. This new online guide, a uniquely structured interface to the thousands of videos stored at Internet Archive, sorts the episodes into meaningful guides based on show title and year of original broadcast, and quickly directs users to favorite shows or newly-discovered television gems. Videos are embedded at RerunCentury.com for free viewing with no account required, and no video advertising apart from any historic commercials intact within the original broadcasts. Over 170 series and 1,300 episodes are indexed for free viewing.
RerunCentury.com has built its our own database of metadata about the classic TV videos, and has added info from other freely-available sources and from its own independent research.
