South China Morning Post: Recording old Hong Kong on video: why this group believes digitising VHS tapes is key in preserving city’s history. “To restore Hong Kong’s videocassette memories, a group of enthusiasts started HKVCRBase 16 years ago to collect videotapes and upload their content online. The group has gathered more than 6,000 videotapes and digitised countless clips, from advertisements to concerts, news and dramas. Their Facebook page has garnered 77,000 followers, and their YouTube channels combined have nearly 60,000 subscribers.”
