Great News for the World TV Tapes

In the early 1970’s, Bre. Frank Abel and Peter Robinson did live religious call-in TV programs on the Kitchener Cable TV station. The station had a very limited viewer audience as was the case of Cable TV then. In 1976, Bro. Frank thought that programs should be made for commercial TV stations which would have a much wider audience. So in 1976 a committee was formed to do just that. In
August of 1977, 26 programs (2 later programs made to summarize the series) were made at the commercial Barrie TV station studio. They were titled ‘Great
News for the World’. For one year these programs ran on this station in Barrie at 12:00 noon on Sundays and later on Global TV in Toronto.

The tapes were made on 2 inch tapes necessary for commercial stations. They were then copied onto ¾ inch tapes for home viewing. These home tapes did not last long as ½ inch tape machines (VHS) replaced the ¾ inch variety. So more copies were made to fit the newer machines. The files now on this page are in the universal MP4 format and have been converted so that they can be played on present day computers. You will need a media player such as Windows Media Player installed on your computer – with the correct codecs installed. We have checked Windows computers with versions XP, Vista, 7 and Version 10. To work on Windows version 10, you will need to download a patch for Windows Media Player. We have not as yet found a way to play them on version 8.

Keep in mind that these tapes are at least 35 years old so the video is not pristine. Furthermore, when you convert from 2 inch to ¾ inch tapes to ½ inch tapes and then to digital files for computer use, you always lose some quality. However, having said that, they are still watchable. You will note that a few files have some video scrambling (for only a second or two). The audio is not scrambled during this time.

There were 28 programs in the series. Unfortunately, We have all files except programs # 5-8. They are found on one cassette tape. If you can help in locating these tapes, please us know via the contact us form.
