Ahhh... Computer Show... organized by the legendary Greek mag "Pixel" - later on I went to work there!

Horrible KO2 skills but still, we should try to find and contact these guys for the World Cup.

And of course we had color TV... probably the videotape on which the show was recorded was corrupted.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Perhaps KO2 came out in 1890 ?

Amazing find Dnielsen and makes you ponder the possibilities of KO2TV! :D

Any chance of a translation from our Greek friends of any choice lines in there ?

Nice footage! Runty skillz though.

I wonder if they had to edit out a corner bug 20 seconds from the end?

No sure who won, but that commentator did a great job of putting off both players. What was he on about? Dictating the complete works of Shakespeare in 6 minutes?

:lol: Actually he did a pretty good job, he commentated the game with plenty of humor, saying things like "Curtis is injured, we hope that this talented player will be back on his feet soon" and "approximately 280,000 spectators are watching the match".

I noticed that too - maybe the greeks are better at KO2 than history! ;) :)

Nah, I just plucked a figure out of thin air whereas Alkis' is a typo, I reckon.

Just saw the video. I have all episodes from the show. But video tapes are messed up and are b/w too! :(
