The tape in question was a 1/2" Sony 60-minute reel, presumed to have been recorded in 1973. Upon playback, no image was produced. A professional transfer house had ascertained the tape to be irreparable and it had been given up for lost by the maker, although the tape was the sole copy of a significant video art work (recorded on a black and white portapak).
