    It was Video 2000 that had double sided tapes.

    Betamax suffered in the long run from having a shorer recording time due to the tape size being smaller, along with Sony not licencing the technology as well as JVC did with VHS.

    Thought so - I assume that very few companies dealt with them. Grundig was one that sprung to mind.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    It would definitley be a VHS no dounts at all on that level/score ..... but which/what Model/Make , I'm unsure what kind - though it sure was like a slim (for the late 80s) modern-oish Grey thing - circa 1986 to 1988 - but my Mum's partner of Today - used to own Beatamaxes for years before VHS won through and even owned them until the mid to early 90s - circa 93/94 - if though we'd known how Popular Car Boots would be - he could easily of bought tons of Tapes no doubts I am unsure and just carried on taping like people choose to do (like me) with VHS in gavour of DVD or another friend who for years used a tape every Sunday Night for "Sounds of the Sixties"!!
