This Video-CD has been made from various video recordings from 1983 to 1994. They are all not of very good quality, some black and white, but very interesting I think. Available on one CD-R.
Video-CD's can be played on DVD players or normal CD-ROM players using Windows Media Player. I can NOT play this Video-CD on my external Sony DVD player (DVP-NS705V). So I can only guarantee that it works on your PC CD-ROM drive!
