For the last few months we have been archiving all our VHS, VIDEO8 and VHS-C tapes to MINI DV as a way to preserve our old master tapes, which we have found out that some of them no-longer work, with some tapes full of drop out, the master tape for our first zombie film Ripped Apart was one of them, we did manage to recover a one and half minutes of footage from the tape but even that is unwatchable, the original master tapes have been recoded over when we film the Nightmare of the Living Dead (AKA: Bishop Rock Zombie – Filming title) so the only master tape of the original edit is gone and unrecoverable, but the film did have a video release in 1997 on the Home Production video label, we have been unable to contact the owner of Home Productions via his address or via the Internet as they may have closed down or running under a new name, the videos supplied by Home Production had been sold via mail order and magazine ads so it may be impossible to find a copy to reproduce.
