The Electrohippies Really Badly Edited Video (TERBEV)

In the days before cheap/free computer software-based editing suites were easily available, the greatest obstacle to making a video was not filing it, but rather editing the footage collected.

TERBEV was The Electrohippies Really Badly Edited Video; produced as part of a research project to create a "low-tech" educational video using just an old (VHS tape!) video camera, recorded broadcast video, and two ordinary VHS VCRs to dub the sections together – to demonstrate that it doesn't require a fancy mixing desk to create a video.
