    Default Your oldest video tape ...

    Whether it is bought or taqped ...... what is your's. My one is some recording's of Bread from 1987 and Grange Hill in 1988 the next oldest.

    Until about 18 months-2 years since I was proud and pleased tohave the Bread Rome Special from 1988 on tape - taped new at Xmas 1988. As well on there was Cliff richard's original performance at ( i believe the Royal Albert hall, but i'd stand corrected if wrong) of Misletowe and Wine that was on before Bread that year.

    The tape was was sadly very very very old and amazingly given recording's from better Video Machine's held up well, but stood the test of time but sadly we became divorced and I feel i'll never see the Rome Episode ever again, but i was pleased to have it for near on 21 years non-the-less

    Following all these I have the Bread Xmas 1989 Special which i'd be truly devasted to loose to "wear and tare" (more wear hopefuly), but touch wood it could easily eclipse the former Xmas Special in age terms I believe and feel and is well en-route (again touch wood and lady luck permitting) to it's "25th" birthday

    Hmm, they are incredibly difficult to come across and you'll be very lucky to come across the Grange Hill Videos Darren. Same with the Ferry Aid record i've got - but sadly it does'nt work good at all.

    Mine are probably early-mid 80s. We didn't get a video recorder until 1983 and the oldest ones i've still got are a Duran Duran video single call Dancing on the valentine and a making of the Band aid single.
