Comment: Several boys (around 40 ?) in white shiny shorts, mostly simple, plain white without stripes. Some few with two black stripes. Nice jumping scenes.

I found a very brief clip on my backups. Currently, I don’t know the exact year. Must be around 1990, I assume 1992 because of the Olympia text (Amsterdam nomination). I also recorded much in 1992. Broadcaster Veronica.

I can’t say much more as I haven’t found my original tape. I definiteley don’t have the complete show. But probably these boys were only shown at the beginning (or less likeley the end) of the show.



Unknown 13 = Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben 1987 documentary


Finally found! It’s a 1987 documentary about a boys’ choir in Stuttgart, obviously the Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben. Aired/produced in 1987 on SDR (Süddeutscher Rundfunk) but must have been aired/rebroadcasted later, maybe late 80s or early 90s. I haven’t found the original tape. Produced by Hans-Peter Birke, editor Peter Konzelmann.

A rather short Soccer scene. Also white and/or beige shiny shorts like the yellow ones. Also dark blue Adidas shorts, but probably of cotton fabric. Also blue, red and other colors. No other scenes of interest, at least not on my clip.

I don’t have the beginning, so not sure about the correct title.

Comment: Around 100 or more boys and teen boys in medium blue, modern Adidas shorts Schalke 04 logo on the right legs. So probably Soccer boys.

I haven’t found any pics or clips of the boys on the web and it took me several days to search my hard discs and backups. Luckily, I found it on my original tape. I only have some few minutes and the kids are not always shown or from a distance. So rather few good scenes, so rating 6-7 only. It begins of them running downstairs and then round the arena.

I don’t know if it was a live show, but I do think so, probably around 11 or 12 o’clock. Not sure about the correct TV show title. Maybe it was shown within another usual show on WDR like Aktuelle Stunde. But more likely in a special show. Probably on Saturday, April 19 (or Sunday 20).

Obviously the show consisted of many other parts including music and acrobatics, so I can’t say much about the amount. It’s also possible, that I didn’t had enough free tape space and it was a longer show. Has anybody more infos?

Comment: I found these pics on one of my backups.

A shirtless boy in medium blue swim briefs or tight shorts. Not sure about the fabric.

I can’t say much more. Probably an US (or maybe Canadian or Australian movie)? Maybe a TV drama? Could also be made in the 80s. Aired probably in the early 90s in Germany.

Does anybody recognize the movie or actors?

Some Soccer boys in shiny shorts including at least 2 red and one in light blue. I think the light blue one has a long white drawstring bouncing outside.

I found this pic on my backups. I think this was a commercial about diabetic (or was it asthma ?). Main character is the boy in the light blue shorts. I think also shown in (light blue ?) pajamas at night.

I’m not sure about the broadcasting date and haven’t found (my) clip, yet. Either 1988 or 1989 or early 1990s.

Also not sure about the purpose. Maybe donations or saver living or that people should go check themselves or for a hotline. I think it’s not about a product. Has anybody more details?

Update: Unknown 11 – Australian movie or series


I found these 2 pics, which are obviously from the same series (or movie). Also titled Australian 1990. Note, the same garden door. I still haven’t found any clips.

Maybe this was just aired in 1990 in Germany. Looks more like an early 1980s series according to the old cars. Also rare, the boy has crossed chains on his chest.

Somehow the blonde boy looks familiar. It must be much easier now, to find this one.

Comment: I found these 2 tiny pics on one of my backups some time ago. I must have or had one or 2 short clips in a very tiny resolution (160 px). One of my first tries on capturing from my old tapes. Unfortunately, I also couldn’t find the original tape, yet.

I’m not sure, but I think this is from the German TV magazine “pur” showing American junior lifeguards in dark blue swim shorts. I’m pretty sure that these are US boys, Australians often wear speedos.

The file dates are from 1999 but could be changed (earlier or later). Maybe someone remembers this episode and can help? Probably this wasn’t an original German production but an US one. So, who knows the alternate title?

Some good scenes and handsome kids.

Rating 6 for now.

Comment: I found this single snapshot on my old PC. Digitized in June 2004. According to the haircut and 70s style of the yellow shorts, this is probably either a late 70s or early 80s movie (or series). And maybe American? Looks like they’re going to play Baseball? Are they carrying gloves? Or bags, maybe for swimming? The left one looks more like a hat, maybe for riding? Somehow the other boys, the white hat and the striped shirt look quite modern and more European, maybe German?

Sorry, I currently can’t say anything more, yet. No broadcaster’s logo. Probably a VHS recording, aired/rebroadcasted in the early 90s (can’t be before 1988).

Rating 8-9 for now. Can anybody help? Found.

Comment: At least one Dutch Hockey playing boy in rather tight, I think shiny white Adidas shorts with light blue stripes and inner briefs. I think also sitting on the floor. Others in white, non-Adidas shorts.

I don’t remember the title. Maybe “Potje Sport” (1994-1995) or somethin else within “Villa Achterwerk” (1992-). Potje Sport was very interesting and had some more (shiny) shorts (including white, red and blue) but also or mainly lesser known sports with other clothes. Many handsome kids.

Digitized in 2003, but probably have been aired (and produced) much earlier (in the 90s).

When I have more time I have to search for more. But most likely, I don’t have the title as the screenshot gives no clue. Who can help?

Comment: At least this boy shirtless in wet white/colorful swim shorts. Maybe not or not that shiny, but still interesting.

According to my notes this was produced (or aired) in 1990 on BR (Bayerischer Rundfunk). (German) title, subtitle or episode title might starts with “Rebe…”, maybe Rebecca or Rebel. Digital file captured in June 2001. So definitely aired before that. Also note the white squares next to the logo. When do they use these?

The only one what might fit is Haydaze (1990, rating 7) which was also aired on BR in 1999. But I can’t remember this scene, and location and girl look different. Maybe more likely a movie?

Rating 5-6 for now.

I found 2 more pics of another, blonde boy


Update: Found by myself thanks to new pics (It’s Clayton Williamson) and checking all 80s AUS series.
