Tape Land 144 – Polarized Worlds – Doctor Who fan film from 1985 (Summer 1985)

44:31 – Welcome to Tape Land! On each episode, I’ll present the audio of a cassette tape or historic material from my personal archives.

This episode is part of a sub-project within Tape Land called “Video Phase 2022”. I recently began transferring a ton of old video tapes to digital, and have been posting selections to YouTube. Here, I’ll be releasing the audio tracks of these videos, as well as linking you to the YouTube videos.

Polarized Worlds – Doctor Who fan film from 1985

“Polarized Worlds” is a Doctor Who fan film made by a group of teens in Bridgewater Township, NJ, in the summer of 1985. Thought lost, director Frank Edward Nora found a Beta dub of the original VHS, over 36 years later in December 2021.

The audio of the raw videos shot for Polarized Worlds have long been available on The Onsug in a series called Video Kids 85. But this is the first time the final movie has been released. The beginning of the video didn’t transfer – it included a title card reading “Glynnora Productions”, an introduction by writer/producer Jim Glynn, and scenes of the first six Doctors from the BBC series, establishing Paul Bergen as the Seventh Doctor. I’ll restore the beginning at some point, if at all possible. I’m also planning to release more of the “behind the scenes” footage.

Released 12/18/21
