Info Wanted: Star Wars: A New Hope - OLD TV Broadcast Rips Available?
Time

Baxterianism, I still have my VHS recording of the world television premier of Star Wars.  It was recorded in 1983 off of a now defunct Canadian station called "Super Channel."  It was the first payTV channel in Canada, and Star Wars was the first movie they ever aired.  No commercials in it, however, as it was a movie channel.

You can read a bit more about it here: http://theswca.com/images-misc/superchannelplaque.html

 

 Thats great to see, thanks alot!

Help: looking for... Star Wars Radio Drama Preservation?
Time

I grew up listening to one episode a night before I went to sleep for years.

Has anyone done anything in the way of grouping all the audio and video clips together? By video i mean the video shot of the actors etc recording in the studio. Ive seen a few clips of these around you tube.

I was also wondering if anyone had attempted to put stills or footage from the film/storyboards/concept artwork together to make something to watch while listening to the radio drama? Much like the dub of the tredmill deleted scene using the audio of the radio drama.

Just a thought!

I can't remember which region we lived in at the time...(Did lots of moving etc then) The original poster of the video on you tube says its from a later year like you said above, so it's not the version im after which is why i don't recognise the ads I assume.

 

UPDATE: I think it would have been the broadcast for Norfolk

Ive have looked though those before posting, just re-read. and spotted

 

"if your recording is of the first ever ITV broadcast of Star Wars, then it'll be from 1982.

I've just dug out some clippings I saved from the TV Times way back then, and its dated for the week of 23-29th October 1982, with Star Wars being shown on the Sunday at 7.15."

But I must be blind as I can't see anyone stating that the vertions shared are from that TV rip? with or without ads. I have looked at the official list but can only see listings from either LDs or from bootleg VHS in the late 70s?

Can someone please spell this out for me?

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.

Anyway, …

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.
