I have been lurking around these forums for months, re-living a childhood dream, it’s amazing to see so many with such passion for the movies I hold so dear.
I have looked in amazment at some of the work done to preserve the ANH as it was first seen.
My first glimpse of Star Wars was on VHS recorded off the TV complete with adverts (ITV).
Sadly I can no longer watch this copy as the video was lost long ago. I wonder if any other VHS rips with adverts are floating around?
Does anyone know the dates for UK airing for ANH on TV? When did it first show? Etc? I was told that my father recorded it when it was first on TV, he does not remember the year. “79 - 81ish” he thinks.
I remember very little of the adverts other than one about sweets… either skittles or m&ms… tones of them lots of children and like a fountain of sweets. Any guidence of what the year of this airing may have been would be nice.
Or my dream come true… a DVD transfer of the tv airing i watched (with adverts) for me to ware out… I can dream 😉
again, any advice or help would be great.
