My Dad keeps a lot of stuff. Receipts going back decades. And manuals too.Even if the item is long gone from existence. Here’s a scan of one such manual he’s kept dutifully in a draw for safe keeping. It’s their/our first ever video recorder.It was a rental model circa 1980 I think. I believe it’s basically a generic re-badging of a JVC model. My memory of it was that it was a very heavy clunky affair. Certainly no remote control. Dad also has a receipt for the first blank tape purchased for this which cost a whopping £13 from W H Smith.
