I have just got hold of the DVD 'Great Violinists of the Bell Telephone Hour' (a Christmas present from my wife). It's wonderful! Lots of colour footage of greats such as Michael Rabin, Menuhin, Ricci, David and Igor Oistrakh, Erica Morini etc, and all from the years 1959 -1964.
A wonderful record of these people at their respective peaks. I particularly enjoy Rabin playing the Tchaikovsky and the Oistrakh duo playing the Bach double. I recommend this DVD most highly.
