This video was made during a visit to Australia by Harry & Elaine Stuart after a long absence. Harry relentlessly videoed every meeting with Betar friends and relatives over a 5-day period. This, and other videos from 1998, were the result.
So- why now? Stored with several thousand feet of Super-8 film for which he was looking for a conversion device, Harry rediscovered the videos he had forgotten about and resurrected them. Having also located both his analogue and digital video cameras and found them operational after 20 years of storage, he searched out the necessary hardware and software to transfer them to digital, edit and then load to YouTube.
Christmas day is usually a write off for many of us - but Harry had not tasted an Aussie BBQ for 25 years. So Avraham and Raymonde Appel, Evie and Elliott Katz and Brian Rudzki headed out to the Silvan Reservoir, about 30 miles west of Melbourne, for some steaks, snags and chops.
