  1. The other tune is the theme song from the television show "Bonanza".
  2. Lake Placid 1980 - Ice Hockey Medal Ceremony - as broadcast live on ABC's Wide World of Sports 2-24-1980:
  3. Here is a little gift for all of you people who have been so nice to me here through the years. I have uploaded several videos to my google drive account, including the TNT broadcast of the 1991 Pan Am Games Opening Ceremony, and the ABC broadcast of the Lake Placid 1980 Closing Ceremony (the latter I have painstakingly assembled from videos uploaded to youtube over the years from 6 or 7 different people. It's still not quite complete, but it's the most complete version currently available. Here is the link. I hope this works. Enjoy! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/13e1D7ZJ52QjdZgw
  4. Actually, the main source for information on the Buffalo 1993 is the Buffalo News newspaper. Their online archive goes back to 1988 and is fully searchable. It contains a treasure trove of information on the 1993 games and some on the 1991 games as well. You need to subscribe to have full access, but you can read 3 articles for free each day if you don't. I did the latter. https://buffalonews.com/search/?nsa=eedition&app=editorial&d1=&d2=&s=start_time&sd=asc&l=25&t=article%2Cvideo%2Cyoutube%2Ccollection&q=World+University+Games&d1=&d2= I also p
  5. CCTV telecast of the Opening Ceremony of the 2007 Asian Winter Games in Changchun, Quality is only 240p, but nonetheless Enjoy!
  6. Sure! I'd be happy to provide a copy for you. If you want to PM through this board, we can discuss it.
  7. Do you know where I can find the opening and closing ceremonies? I have been trying to locate them for years. I do have the complete ESPN telecast of the 1999 Pan American Games you are looking for - it was a two hour telecast of highlights that aired the evening after the closing ceremony. In addition here are two sources of other non-ESPN footage: The first is the official CBC highlight video of the 1999 Pan Am Games: And here is a link to a youtube channel with extensive footage (mostly track and field) from Brazilian TV: Nilsondm - YouTube
  8. I am looking for the coverage of the 1999 Pan AMerican Games.  We only had a short amount of coverage in the US, but I have been trying to find that video coverage for over 20 years now.  DO you know anyone that has it?  The opening and closing is easy to find but the actual events coverage I cannot find.

  9. Home Video Footage of the Opening Ceremony of the 1993 U.S. Olympic Festival at the Alamodome in San Antonio. Enjoy!
  10. The opening portion of the Closing Ceremony of the 1982 Asian Games in New Delhi. The 9th Asian Games-1982 Location: #Delhi #P.T.Usha #Indira Gandhi #Orbit_Videovision - YouTube
  11. I can think of at least one ABC commentator who would not hesitate to vent anger at a judges decision: Dick Button. He always spoke out forcefully whenever he thought someone was scored too low or treated unfairly. That's one thing I always liked about him. He was figure skating's biggest booster, but was never afraid to be harshly critical of it, too. Now he did go overboard a few times. His distraught commentary of Babilonia and Gardner's withdrawl at Lake Placid, was over the top jingoism, for sure, but he was way more fair to non-americans than most American announcers usually are.
  12. Here is something different: The full live 4 hour ABC radio broadcast of the Opening Ceremony of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, Gold Coast, Australia. 2018 Commonwealth games Opening Ceremony ABC radio - YouTube
  13. Actually, the problem was money. The Buffalo organizing committee never received the amount of sponsorship expected, and the New York State government basically gave them the middle finger when asked for help. The USOC was pre-occupied with it's Olympic Festival in San Antonio and private money failed to materialize due to the economic recession at the time. You know you're in trouble when your biggest sponsor is the local telephone company! It was so bad that the organizing committee had to buy national TV time as no network was willing to buy rights to the games. Even that was a mess as the
  14. Another great youtube find! The closing credits to Eurovision's coverage of the Buffalo 1993 World University Games, featuring video highlights of the games set to the complete version of the official song of the games "One World Together" as sung by Clint Holmes during the opening ceremony. I love this song and have been looking for a complete recording of it for a long time. It's a shame this song has been forgotten it was really great! Enjoy! The lyrics to the song's chorus: One world together Not worlds apart One world forever Hand in hand - from the heart One world to
  15. Here is home movie footage shot in Chicago in 1959. This includes rare color footage of the IIIrd Pan American Games in Chicago. The Pan Am footage starts at 13:45 and runs through 22:53 and includes footage of the Opening Ceremonies (Parade of Nations, Team USA entry, athletes lined up on the infield, Eagle Scout Ronald Rodriguez lighting the flame, flagbearers gathered around the podium for the oath) track and field, swimming and diving, and the equestrian prix de nations. Enjoy!
