The Aluminum Corporation of America sponsored various television programs during the 1950's and early 1960's. The sponsor
started with The Alcoa Hour, a 60 minute live anthology drama in the fall of 1955. The 1956/57 television season brought a trend to replace live broadcasts
with pre-recorded film. The Alcoa Hour went off the air in September 1957 and became a thirty minute filmed program. Other Alcoa shows followed in the late 1950s
and early 1960s: Alcoa Premiere, Alcoa Presents, and Alcoa Theatre.
