Thanks to the Someone Has Posted YouTube page we fans of Tron can enjoy this clip from Walter Cronkite’s “Universe” series from back in 1982. In the clip Crokite is directed by Associate Producer Harrison Ellenshaw (Star Wars: Episode IV, The Black Hole) and is ‘digitized’ into the world of Tron to showcase the effects of the then upcoming Tron feature film. The quality of the uploaded video is a little off as is pointed out:
“Recorded via and archived in Betamax® format. Sorry about the poor quality which stems from the co-channel interference on the broadcast reception at the time of the recording.”
The video is still highly enjoyable to say the least.
A huge thanks to io9 for the heads up on this incredible video.
