How To Avoid Dementia Tax

Recommended Posts

Sounds like a lot of work, Compo, but I appreciate the thought.  Didn't know any even had a Beatmax anymore.  They bit the dust before vhs if I remember rightly.  Should probably see if anybody thinks it's worth watching first.

I could record it for you on my Betamax recorder and post it on, Loppylugs....


Was that remark said in fun, Compo, or do you really have a Betamax recorder still working and in use?  I have two stored in the roof (need attention) and loads of tapes full of old films, Hancock's Half Hours, etc.


Actually Betamax was a superior format to VHS. The film and television companies all used that format. The problem was that the rental companies went for the VHs format and it became the most popular as a result. There was a time when most people rented instead of bought.
