The video recordings were taken from old VHS tapes which were copies of the original S-VHS tapes. These 'copy' tapes weren't in very good condition.

The technical quality of these videos is sadly lacking, however, the content is what is important.

These old recordings show just how far technology in video recording has advanced in recent years.
