628 Video Video

First  viewed : 3  September  1983

This  was  TV's  first  show  to  explicitly  cover  the  burgeoning  market  in  VHS  cassettes. How  quaint  that  now  sounds; I  literally  can't  give  away   a  dozen  or  so  that  I've  got   in  the  cupboard. I  feel  very  sorry  for  people  that  have  substantial  collections.

Video  Video   was  broadcast  on  Channel  4  early  on  Saturday  evenings   and  like  Film ... consisted  of  reviews  and  film  reports. It's  only  memorable  for  presenter  Adam  Faith's  struggles  - with  the. - autocue  but  then  uselessness  was  always  part  of  his  charm.

  1. I've probably got about 40 VHS tapes in my cupboard. Anybody who wants Man United's "The Road to Wembley" video from 1990, let me know!

    I imagine we'll be saying the same about DVD/Blu Ray in 30 years time...
