I have found a Ferguson camcorder which I bought about 10 years ago and thought had been thrown out at least 5 years ago! Along with it are some tapes which we recorded things on, birthday parties and such like in the VHS-C format. I have two questions I wonder if anyone knows the answer to:
1. I have tried looking up Ferguson through Google, but they seem to have disappeared off the earth. Does anyone know if they were bought out and trade under a different name? I am trying to get hold of a manual, I know i'm clutching at straws but.....
2. To play the tapes on the video, we used to have a VHS size empty cassette which we placed the camcorder's tape into. I haven't seen any around for a while (not that i've been looking). Does anyone know if they are still available?
Ferguson was bought by the French-based multi-national, Thomson (as long ago as 1987 according to their website: "Thomson bought the last British consumer electronics manufacturer Ferguson from Thorn").
