Kelly: The form to add a new title (in this case it's an old show, but it's new to IMDb) to IMDb starts at https://contribute.imdb.com/updates?update=title and continues on succeeding screens.

While you are not required to provide a Miscellaneous Link for older titles during the submission process, it's a good idea to do so if you can find links to any online articles about the show or other online information about it.

If you run into problems during the submission process, you can always come back to this message board and ask. 

Good luck!

Thanks gromit82!

Ed, it is T.A.M.I. from 1964.

It was released in 2009 after 45 years in the dark. I found out about it via the article by James Sullivan in Time. It’s on DVD.

It is a great milestone in the history of contemporary popular music.

Sometimes, there are some attractive topics on GS at last!
Thanks for the input, Kelly. (I guess IMDb owes it to you: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058631/reference)

Kelly: I remember that when I saw The T.A.M.I. Show on DVD, the on-screen title was something different, along the lines of "Teenage Awards Music International" but I don't remember whether that was exactly it. Whatever title you found it under should be listed as an Alternate Title.

Hi, Kelly Gerling. If you own the rights or an adequate license to the show then you can apply for IMDb Title Scorecard, for the title page in question, and upload up to maybe 45 minutes of the show.

Thanks Jeorj. What about providing a link to the entire show that is published online? Like in a section of references?
