Video Source Material Focused on Rob
Collected in the Course of The Intimate Study
Rob made significant appearances in 29 of the 75 TIS videos:
The Intimate Study Video Catalog
Tape Format Conversion Notes:
All original recordings were made on a reel-to-reel Sony Port-a-pac. When the Peggy study tapes were converted to VHS format, the only TIS tapes converted to VHS were those marked with an “X” in the final profile series. These tapes have been digitized, as well as tapes 1, and 45-48. The remaining tapes were recovered and, to the extent possible, digitized in 2009-2010.
Download and Streaming
The files are optimized for streaming, but since typically they run to 20mb, there is often
a delay in beginning, even with cable internet. Larger files mean longer delays.
