Are all of the Tony Browns Journal programs available for viewing through this website?
Currently, there are nearly 600+ programs that have been converted to digital. There will be nearly 1,000 Tony Brown's Journal programs available to stream on this website once we are completely finished with the video conversion process.
What is the playback quality of the programs?
We have invested significant time, capital, and energy into converting and restoring the Tony Brown's Journal series. It is important to remember that some of these episodes were recorded in the 1970's. Therefore, the original master films of these programs had aged significantly. Additionally, the video resolutions of film from earlier generations was not as crisp and clean as modern day film. However, we have taken the converted video footage and put it through a double pass encoding process in order to create the best possible video quality for playback through this website. There are some programs that may have occasional flicker or choppiness, as that may have been the best playback that we could produce when considering the age and condition of the original program master film. If for some reason a certain program video on this site does not meet basic guidelines for playback (such as video/audio voice syncing), then we would appreciate it if you reported that video by clicking here. We can then reattempt the conversion process for that video to possibly improve the video playback quality.
Can I download the programs from TonyBrownsJournal.com for playback while not connected to the internet?
