I agree, great stuff.
I wonder what else is hiding under Alun's bed?
superb, thanks alot to alun for unearthing this pure gold.
Brilliant footage. More please!
Brilliant to see this. Especially interesting to see Jerry on what's clearly his first go.
Amazing. Best Friday night vid in ages. I could watch johnny climb all day. Loved the 80's special effects too!
This is superb, but where's the terrible soundtrack to spoil it? ;)
Loving the VHS flicker too - absolute blast from the past. You gotta get that tracking right....
Sweeet. What a joy.
No special cuts, no arty fluff, no dodgy music.
Simply the best video I've seen on UKC.
Pure gold indeed!
I hope so tooooooooo!
Totally brilliant !
Masters at work :-)
