The Industry: The Rural Purge

The Rural Purge is legend of television history. A landmark time and a watershed moment when TV decided to leave behind the down home fun and wholesomeness of shows like Mayberry RFD, Green Aces, and The Beverly Hillbillies for urban skewing shows like All in the Family and The Mary Tyler Moore Show. But what was it that prompted mass cancellations and started a television revolution? In this episode we explore the history of The Rural Purge with author Telly Davidson.

Telly Davidson’s latest book is available here.
