Not remotely shocked that the US Navy were such little bitches that they couldn't possibly cope with another country having a good technology.

if there will be some kind of future war where every electric device will be fried up that would be a gem. Somebody need to record Lord of the Rings on that vinyl. That is an ultimate move that we could use to rebuild our civilisation in right way! 😀

Had to come back here to say I just saw that exact Selectavision player at a local record store and wouldn't have even noticed it if I hadn't just seen this series.
Understandably no one else shared my enthusiasm.

We had an RCA Selectavision VHS when I was a kid… it was handed down to us by my uncle, who was a technophile. He bought a Beta and VHS since he didn't know how it was going to pan out. He upgraded his VHS and gave us his old Selectavision which looked similar to yours. Ahh, those huge clunky buttons!

We have a copy of the Last Unicorn on CED bumping around somewhere. We got it as a bit of odd memorabilia, knew it was a short lived competitor to vhs and laserdisc, but honestly didn't find too much about it at the time. I had no idea how it works until now. Kind of neat actually

No joke…. I know a guy that had one of these in like 1990… guy paid big money to get the player plus like 75 movies. Then he paid even bigger money for a LaserDisc player and a whole whack of movies (over 100 if I recall). Of course this is also the same guy that changed his name from Chris to Lucifer Dominae. He legally changed his name to Lucifer.

It's very interesting content, but I don't like how you withhold the crucial information until 3/4 of the way through the video to keep people watching.

Alternate universe where the navy never intervened in the GE-Marconi deal and the New British Empire achieved world domination.

Probably actually terrible but would have been amazing 20 years earlier (I liked ours more than the VCR because rewinding took so long for kids 😛 )

at 4:24 marconis antennas were actually in the top left, about 1/3 of the way in, in franklin nj. there’s still one building left of the original facility, and an antenna still (although not an original). it was on a farm. the original antennas were removed to make way for the plaza on Easton Avenue, at that point all the buildings on the other side of Jfk blvd still stood. later, most of the buildings were torn down to make way for a storage facility, but still remaining is a brick house that housed the workers on the antennas. they also saved a lot of the material from the other buildings in case any reconstruction was needed. for more info google franklin nj marconi and browse through, our library has some cool photo archives too!

My grandmother and grandfather used to have one. They bought one in 1984 and it worked until 2013. Good times. 29 years.

It made me smile as you played "Murder by Death", a fantastic movie! I'm glad there are others showing appreciation for this classic.

UHF 62 is the best.

Mrs Richards: " I paid for a room with a view!"
Basil: (pointing to the lovely view) "That is Torquay, Madam."
Mrs Richards: "It's not good enough!"
Basil: "May I ask what you were expecting to see out of a Torquay hotel bedroom window? Sydney Opera House, perhaps? the Hanging Gardens of Babylon? Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically past?…"
Mrs Richards: "Don't be silly! I expect to be able to see the sea!"
Basil: "You can see the sea, it's over there between the land and the sky."
Mrs Richards: "I'm not satisfied. But I shall stay. But I expect a reduction."
Basil: "Why?! Because Krakatoa's not erupting at the moment?

Here's a weird thing. The last time I went to Disney World, at the the end of the Space Mountain ride you went down an escalator, listening to some canned diatribe that started with "Welcome to RYCA-1!". At the bottom there was a RCA demo room, which included among other things a TV with a SelectaVision player. This was in 1986 (yes, the same year CED was officially canned).
