Hi Thanks for the info..i dont think i have any photos as you can imagine none of todays gadgets were around in those days.. but i still got my old BSB square dish system gathering dust in the garage. Regards
I still have a Sony Betamax in the cupboard and about 40 tapes it might be a collectors piece soon.
I had a Furgy 3V23 vcr, it lasted nearly 18 years until the repair bills made it uneconomical, I then bought a french S-vcr which jammed up continuously and eventually the main processor chip packed up and they didn't make it anymore, I then gave up with casstte recorders and and used HD recorders which were a pain at first, they have been ok for the the last 10 years.
We had the video2000 when I was a kid, like most people we use to rent it. You could record on both sides of the tape.
Not visionhire it was a local video/tv rental place called norman ellis in leeds. We had it for years.
