Unseen Rover videos go online

Post by mab01uk »

"An exciting new stash of videos – many unseen for years – produced by Marketing department has been unearthed, and they’re being digitised to be made available online to view for free.
The videos are being hosted on the YouTube channel (below) of The Austin Rover/Rover Group alumni – a group to help former employees keep in touch with each other. The recently-launched channel is showcasing a large number of internal or launch videos from the 1980s and ’90s. There are also some rare and some unseen TV commercials.
Most of the latest videos were in a hoard of more than 130 VHS cassettes from Rover Group’s Marketing Department that were stored in a Leamington lock-up for 20 years. They were put in storage when the department moved out of Ivy Cottage on the Canley site and their new building, Conoco House in Warwick, didn’t have the space to keep them.
They mainly cover Rover, Mini, Land Rover and MG in the 1990s but with a lot of earlier content pulled together to explain the brands to BMW following their takeover. The first group of videos includes launch videos for the Rover Metro, the Land Rover Freelander and the Rover 75."
