The Video Store, later known as Inside Video Today, was a weekly local television program broadcast on WFAA-TV in Dallas. Created by executive producer Allan Lord in response to the rising home video industry, the series highlighted the best and latest movie titles viewers could rent or buy from their neighborhood video store. In this 1988 episode, the first weekly installment, anchors Paula McClure and Bill Evans preview new video releases, offer potential “sleepers,” and suggest genre favorites. McClure also recounts her visit to the Video Software Dealers Convention in Las Vegas. Throughout, the program marvels at the benefits of home viewing and the newfound practice of film collecting.
