A VHS Tape from 1996, which is a collection of old ID's and Commercials from MTV's early days. Also includes the original Joe's Apartment short which led to the Movie.  Found this at the apartment building I work at, along with some kids tapes and  A LIEN³.

This is an original rip from my own collection not from anywhere else and converted into HD (or as close as to HD as a 1981 broadcast can look) of the historic first 4 hours of broadcast on August 1, 1981. Multiple files have been merged and converted to HD for an optimal viewing experience. It is unedited and includes every glitch and stumble of the original broadcast. I am also converting some material already present in various forms and various sources to HD for the best picture quality...

A 'VHS-turkáló' csatornára (YouTube és Archive.org) szimplán csak kordokumentumként szolgáló anyagokat töltök fel (többnyire VHS-ről), és nem feltétlenül olyasmiket, amiket jónak tartok. Az eredeti fájlokat és kazettákat már nem tárolom, mert egyikre sem kívánok több időt fordítani. Ebből adódóan nem igazán válaszolok kérdésekre, kívánságokat pedig egyáltalán nem teljesítek.
