More old-school TV

I'm still without convenient internet access, so this is a post I prepared earlier, just like on those cooking shows.

The copyright-infringing intertubes runneth over! Someone's been going through their VHS tapes and uploading choice clips to YouTube:

I'd be interested if anyone finds the early-morning clips from way back, like TV One's national anthem thing or TV3's original one with Russell Rooster and Kerry Kea.

    OMG. Goodnight Kiwi. How oldschool is that!

    Also, you're telling me I look like someone from Shortland Street? your on dangerous ground there, my friend. (even if there IS something of a resemblance).

    Also, that guy is from that crap band, that I cant remember the name of at the moment, which makes it worse...

    I do remember that random pub in Cambridge -- I don't think I have any photos of it, though!

    bob/coz:
    I checked, and I only have a couple of photos from that Cambridge visit (when we had a shower in our room). What a shame the Kiwi was re-painted!
