VCR-35 yrs ago

Did you know that the VCR was introduced thirty-five years ago on June 7,1975. The Sony Corporation released its videocassette recorder, the Betamax, which sold for $995. Eventually, another VCR format, VHS proved more successful and Sony stopped making the Betamax. We still have some films available on the VHS format and a growing collection on DVD. (Sorry no Betamax versions although I think I still have some at home.)
