The Empire Strikes Back, Betamax, Bootleg bought in Qatar, 1982

This bootleg was actually telecined from a 35mm print in the UK and satiated my ESB fix for many years. As Qatar was a protectorate of the British Empire until 1971, the country inherited the PAL system.

My first Star Wars tape - The sentimental value of this tape cannot be overstated. The letters on the spine and the sticker on the back are my childhood additions. I also had a "boing" stamp at the time, as you can see.
