I never collected videos (magnetic video tapes). I knew since the 1970s that they are not durable. But I was busy watching, taping and exchanging, for friends, the number one video eagle being Peter von Bagh in Helsinki. In Berlin, top guys were Frank Arnold and Helmut Arlt, and in Stockholm friends like Terhi and teachers and students at the Film Department of the Stockholm University. I kept constantly organizing video evenings for friends.
In year 1983 I only had VHS players, later also Betamax, which was favoured by the big collectors.
These cassettes I kept playing this year.
