Lost and found

When I first created this page, it seemed like there were hundreds of missing videos and it was all looking pretty bleak. But in reality, things are much rosier.

  • Some listed titles never had videos made
    The databases I’m working from are based on songs that were funded and are less likely to note if a video wasn’t made, with the funding going back to NZ On Air. So some of the titles listed won’t actually have had a video made.
  • A lot of videos are in the Nga Taonga archive
    While a lot of the videos aren’t currently available online, almost 200 of them are in the archive at Nga Taonga Sound & Vision. Getting them online is another issue – it takes time, money, and permission – but it can be done (not by me).
  • Some musicians just don’t want their embarrassing old videos online
    Fair enough!
  • Sometimes I can’t find videos that are online
    My Google-fu isn’t always great. Over the years I’ve developed various techniques for tracking down music videos in the weirdest places, but even still, there are some I miss but later discover.
  • Old videos are still being uploaded
    But best of all – videos are turning up online. Fans are digging out old boxes of VHS tapes, record companies are digitising their back catalogue, and NZ On Screen is adding to its archive of music videos. A lot of videos that were available in 2011 are now online. Ka pai.

If you know anything about any of the videos on this list, please leave a comment below or email me at robyn@5000ways.co.nz. And if you have one of these old videos sitting in a dusty box of old tapes, why not digitise it and put it online? That would be choice.

Videos in the Nga Taonga Sound & Vision archive

These videos might not currently be online, but they can be found in the archive at Nga Taonga Sound & Vision (fka The Film Archive). This means that a video was definitely made and is available to view in person at the archive, should you wish to do so. Links go to the entry at Nga Taonga.

  2. Hi Robyn – Stephen from 5 Go Mad has transferred the only existing copy of ‘Above my Head’ – and one of us will get it to you ASAP.

    There is a box of masters in a box inside a wall of an Italian restaurant off Dominion Road that has masters for another 3-4 missing videos.

    I will try and get a contact for the place in the next few days.. and secure that box!


    1. That’s great news! Cheers to both of you! And I’m very intrigued about the box in the wall of the Italian restaurant. It sounds like just the sort of place that a long-lost box of videos should be!
