Marion Stokes: Keeper of VHS Chronicles for Over 30 Years | Episode 62


In the coming years, you will be able to search the Internet Archive and find footage from news cycles between 1975 and 2012. Because TV stations at the time usually erased their footage so they could record new segments on old tapes, the only reason you will soon be able to see these programs is because one woman, Marion Stokes, took it upon herself to record the 24 hour news cycle all on her own.
