Video clips 1
Home ] Up ]

A selection of clips from the Keith Clements’ video of the Classic Marathon 1998 to Morocco.

All clips are in jpg format suitable for PC viewing, taken with a JVC GR-DVM801 digital video.  I suggest you save into a file and then use a proper viewer to obtain the 768x552x16million colour quality.  They have not been saved in the higher quality bit map format or processed with a photo editor.  Some with movement need to be saved by field rather than frame but quality will come later.  Sound will be added soon so you can relish the throb of the engines.

Please send me any clips you have, particularly of Jowetts, by e-mail or snail mail.   Ed likes Frame 20, send me your vote for the best.  Amy has lots of 35mm pics that are waiting to be returned for scanning. Moises and Malcolm have sent me some photos which are awaiting loading onto the site. Either click on the text or the thumbnail to retrieve a better quality picture.
