@jk

in Britain, mainland Europe and the Commonwealth (basically all PAL countries), VCR was a distinct format (and damn expensive - a recorder cost as much as a reasonable used car back in the day) with only 1 hour recording time (some schools did get these in the 1970s)

This equipment wasn't sold in NTSC countries as it didn't work well over there..

@jk 🎶 put the tape in the VCR and wind it all up 🎶
