Welcome Google visitors! If you're looking for old Manila pictures from the 1950s to the 1970s, you've come to the right place.

You'll see a collection of nostalgic photos when Manila was in its heyday. Just a quick note, I don't take credit for these photos.

Manila when it was the most beautiful city in Asia in the 1950s to 1970s

Sports5, the sports production arm of TV5, launches its first documentary sports series with AKTV Insider on January 7 and 8 starting at 5:30 p.m.

AKTV Insider is the newest addition to the AKTV program line-up that takes a behind the scenes look into the lives your favorite sports idols and legends, on and off the playing field. For its first two episodes, the show will feature an in-depth look at the four teams that made it to the PBA Philippine Cup Semifinals — Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters, San Mig Coffee Mixers, Alaska Aces and Rain or Shine Elasto Painters.

The premiere episode on January 7 features what goes on in the lives of two of the country's greatest basketball minds, legendary San Mig Coffee coach Tim Cone and fiery Rain or Shine coach Yeng Guiao.

On January 8, the show takes an all-access look at defending Philippine Cup champion Talk 'N Text with its new coach Norman Black. It also shows how the young and talented Alaska Aces prepare to fight for their battle, behind first-year PBA head coach Luigi Trillo.

"This has been a phenomenal PBA season so far and the journey to the Philippine Cup finals has truly captivated the imagination of PBA fans everywhere," Sports5 Manager Vitto Lazatin said.

"With AKTV Insider, we want to give fans a deeper look into what it really takes for a PBA team, coach and player to compete at the highest level. You'll see a side of the PBA that you don't normally get to see and I think it will be both entertaining and enlightening."

The documentary series promises to provide intense buildup to the best-of-seven Philippine Cup finals showdown between two-time defending champion Talk 'N Text and reigning Governors' Cup titlist Rain or Shine, which tips off Wednesday.
