You have to be so damn specific if you want to find something. I keep trying to Google an 80's comedian named Doug Gilmore, unfortunately he has the same name as a famous hockey player and info on that guy keeps comming up. Same friggin' thing happens on Wikilepedia and IMDB. This Doug Gilmore hosted a comedy/video show called "Telestar." I can't even prove this show existed because I can't find anything on it any of these sites either. I even tried different spellings Telstar, Tel-Star and Gilmour. How in the world can this show and it's host be this obscure in the digital age? I have often had this problem with search engines. But I've always been able to depend on Wiki and IMDB, until now.

To narrow down searches, you can use hyphens or parenthesis to put a priority on the spelling and word order.

For example: doug-gilmore or "doug gilmore"

The only info I have found so far is a TV show called The Gilmore Brothers (Keith and Doug) which was produced by Telstar.

Interestingly the only info I can find so far is some old trademark information here:

But maybe that will give you a starting point.
