Check Out Billy Mitchell In This Clip From CNN’s “The Eighties” Documentary TV Series!

Having the good fortune to work in an arcade in this day and age I am always on the lookout for other sources of media to not only help push the love I feel for the arcades of my youth but to better explain why an arcade is still needed and profitable with all of our current next gen consoles and titles.

Thankfully that has become just a bit easier as Billy Mitchell was interviewed in this clip for Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s new seven-part documentary series entitled “The Eighties” that debuted on CNN on the 31st of March. The greatest thrill to me in this short video are the vintage video footage of the Golden Age of the arcades!
