I just been going through one of my video and I find something that brought me back memory and it got me thinking. Have you ever seen something on videotape and gives you the good/bad memory of your time that you taped something.

The clip that I saw was the TV version of Wayne's World and it the scene where Wayne/Mike Myers snogs Madonna. I remember when I first saw that seen when I was a teen. I went to hyper when I saw it plus it was the time when I saw the first movie.

Share your story.

Apparently I taped "The Series Has Landed" the night it first premiered.  I don't know why I taped it; I wasn't into Futurama at that point.

I don't know if I still have it, but last year I was going through some tapes that hadn't been used in several years, and I came across Sky One's original advert for "Love's Labors Lost in Space".

I also have the April 30th 1994 edition of Match of the Day, advertising the following day's San Marino GP.  frown

Have you ever let a video run on after the programme's finished to see the end of what you taped over, and subsequently the end of what you taped over before that?  I did that once, and right at the end of the tape was a snippet of Leslie Crowther presenting "The Price is Right", circa 1986!

Fine!

Apparently, My Parents have a small selection of Simpsons series 3-4 on some ancient VHS's from 1992-1993. I've watched them, the quality is shite but it's a time machine when it comes to the adverts and breaks.

I have so much old stuff on tape, some of it that I purposely taped and kept, old gigs, some sport (a Serie A review from 90/91 season, taped from Old Sky Sports), various TV shows I'll not tape over.

On one of the tapes, I have the start of the 1992 British GP, and at the end, an old episode of ITV's Metal Music show, Raw Power, featuring an interview with Screaming Trees (circa 1991).

I remember taping the first ever Sky 1 Futurama interview while I was out. Really I was taping the Robbie Williams concert and I set my video tape to tape it early. The interview was before the concert.

Also on one of my tape were the Sex and the city/The Matrix spoof on MTV Movie Awards. At the time I wasn’t a fan of Sex and the City but I was glad to see that scene again because now I love the show.

I have some pre-NWO Nitro tapes. I had no idea WCW was so boring back then. I used to watch it religiously as a little kid.

Reminds me of when I used to live in ft. Hood with my dad. When my parents got divorced I had to stop watching it.

Lets see what we can find:
  • The first six Star Trek movies.
  • Star Wars episodes 4 - 6.
  • A home video of me as a 3 year old eating chicken.
  • Some old Chip N' Dale cartoons.

I found some old episodes of Space Precinct I'd recorded when I was about twelve. Having bought some of the DVD's recently, I realised that wasn't that bad a series after all. It makes me wish for a time when sci-fi was, well, not crap.

My family watch "The Box of Delights" that we originally taped in 1986. You don't have to know what it is, though it's a kind of Christmas tradition in our household, and I've seen several sites mention TBOD and almost all of them add that they watch it every Christmas too.
I also have various BBC Highlights and general stuff concerning Formula One and Indycars from 1993 - there's probably a ton of other stuff I've forgotten about  tongue

Video tape?... what the hell is that?...

Seriously though, the only things I've got on prehistoric video tapes are old Futurama's (which I have on DVD now anyway), a couple of Simpsons eps, and a load of music videos and interviews...

I know my dad has Fawlty Towers on VHS. I don't know if they are recordings from the original broadcast or subsequent repeats, but they are very old. The quality is shite. Guess what i got him on DVD this X-mas...

I may still have the original C4 Futurama's (those that i remembered were on). I also have a whole collection of "Simpsons tapes" featuring recordings of Simpsons episodes from several years ago off BBC2. I stopped because i was using too many tapes and they ended up repeating them all over and over.

I also have the majority of Bond films from ITV's Bond season. However someone recorded over the middle of Goldeneye (My favourite!). I am slowly building this up on DVD.

You just reminded me.  I've got tapes dating back from 1992 with a load of music videos on them.  I should go back and watch them just to see what's on.

Oh, and as Impy knows, my copy of Live Aid: 10th Anniversary is from 1995.  As, I copied it for her.

I remember that. I used to watch it when I had to go to after school care when I was about 5.

I know I have a heap of AFL games on video still, even North Melbourne vs. Fitzroy from about 1995 (for non-Aussies, Fitzroy merged with Brisbane in 1996). I also think I have some ancient Michael Jackson concert on video when he performed at the MCG, whenever that was (I'm guessing about 1995).

Though it wasn't me who taped them, my parents still have lots of tapes of stuff they recorded in the 1980s.  The oldest, I think, is some repeats of 'The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin' from 1983.  Christ, seeing that old BBC2 logo really takes me back...

nigel mansells winning and victory lap at siverstone in 1992, when he stopped to let aryton senna hitch a ride back to the pits. its inbetween 2 episodes of 'around the world in 80 days with michael palin'. i'm sure i haver other stuff from before that, but this is the most memorable. it always fills me with a kind of bitter-sweet emotion on the rare occasion i see it.

I've every ep but one of The Young One, some Matrix documentaries and interviews. Some Linkin Park programs, and quite a few old films that I taped off the Sky movie channels when I was younger. Thats basically it really  smile

up until recently I had a 1993 episode of "Beyond 2000", which was this Documentary / science and technology show we had here in australia years ago (I think they caned it just before 2000), and according to this tape we're meant to be able to record our dreams these days and communicate with dolphins, and there was something about Wind Farms for electricity.

None of these technologies that were on this beyond 2000 ep are even here yet! I feel so ripped off

Old videotapes are great.... I love watching the old commercials, and the grit of the film is just so nostalgic.  I mean DVD's are great, but watching an old video is like going back in time for a split instant.

...which I just watched too. And it still brings back bad memories. For those out of the know, the 94/95 season was the one when the FA decided to alter the promotion and relegation rules for one year only to bring the number of teams in the Premiership from 22 to 20. Thus 4 teams would be relegated instead of 3, and only the top team instead of the top two would be promoted from division 1, the remaining 4 left to battle it out in a playoff.

Reading played astonishingly all year with their best team of the past few decades. They finished second (well off Middlesbrough who got automatic promotion) and made their way easily into the playoff final. After 4 minutes Nogan scored an excellent goal, fooling the Bolton defence then stirking an excellent left-footer into the botom right corner!

Just 8 minutes later Reading are awarded a free kick just outisde the box, a quick play in finds the Bolton defence asleep and Adie Williams' head. 2-0!

Some halfway through the first half one of the Reading players is tripped in the box and they are awarded a penalty. Stuart "Archie" Lovell steps up and has his shot saved.

The second half Bolton come out all guns blazing and eventually break down Reading's solid defense after 70 minutes. Just 4 minutes from the Reading going to the Premiership Bolton score again and it goes into extra time. Earlier in the match Nogan went off with a hamstring injury, and Readsing are left with a depleted attacking force, and with both subsitutions made, the players look very tired. It shows. Bolton score once in extra time, then with 3 minutes left catch Reading on the break and make it 4-2.

Quinn pulled one back in the dying seconds, but it was 4-3 in the end and Reading failed to make the top flight, again! To this date they still have never ben in the top division.  cry


-------------


Anyway enough of my rambling, during the match was an advert for some beer called Indiana Gold. I've never heard of it, can you still get this stuff? And afterwards was a bunch of old Coronation Street episodes from 95 aswell.

Another video from this year I have is the review of the 95 Ryder Cup, and after that is the original live broadcast of the first 4 hours play. I fear any older videos we have though have been erased by me, probably.

I remember that show Grim, I used to watch it when I was younger, thinking how cool the future was going to be heh....

Like every PEELer should, I have the original airings of Futurama from 1999-2000
The Season 1 tape actually snapped but my Dad fixed it for me  big grin
When I first recorded the show I labelled the tape "Futureama" thinking that was how it was spelled.... tongue

I also have movies I err made "backup" copies of, various South Parks and Simpsons....
