Did this video get played by anyone else as much as it did by me? I could almost recite the whole thing verbatim. Significantly, it was the first I saw any Zoo TV footage on video after seeing the concert. The only flaw was that they put it out before the video for WGRYWH was released, so it's not on there. (Sort of like how the AB deluxe set somehow missed the UTEOTW video.) I just digitized it, and enjoyed the trip down memory lane.

Rock n' roll, doggie!!

I frigging loved that video! One of my favourites when I was just getting into the band.

That tape was EVERYTHING to me when I was first learning about U2 and this was a few months after I bought Achtung Baby so I DEFINTELY got a lot of mileage out of it.  Somehow it has survived years of multiple all-night plays and it's still somewhere in my home after over 20 years, haha.  I also have an extra copy, still wrapped in plastic, never opened.  NOBODY's touching that one.

  • This is where you can reach me now.
Let me put it this way. When I get the Zoo TV DVD, reason 1 will be the show. Reason 1A will be Interference.

I still have this VHS tape. A bit worn out but it still plays well.

As for Trabants, I want one! Lol. Berlin is one of my favourite cities and whenever I go there I always liked to go to TrabiWorld just to see all the cute Trabis they have all, painted all colours and varying patterns! It's also really fun to see the Trabi Safari out on the roads. I was last there in April and I saw a whole long line of Trabants being driven past the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate. I filmed and photographed them. There's something so cute about these cheaply made, clunky old East German cars that I find endearing. I don't drive, otherwise I would have hired one already and driven around Berlin in it! :D

Did I read on here a few months back that Mtv actually had a Zoo TV series?

And in fact, I'd started a thread on it as well:

Actually, it is on DVD - If you have the 2-disc deluxe version of Zoo TV Live from Sydney, but its hidden on disc 2.

I found the trick to unlocking it somewhere in a review on Amazon.

1. Go to the "Documentaries" menu on the second disc
2. Click on "Play all" and fast-forward everything, including the credits.
3. When it gets back to the menu, move the cursor down to "Subtitles".
4. Once your cursor is on "Subtitles", press "Down" once (the cursor will not move) and then press "Left" with the arrow keys on your DVD remote. A small symbol of an O with a line through it appears in center screen.
5. Press "enter" and you'll get the 25 minute documentary, which includes "The History Mix".
