PDF: The complete list of sports programming that HBO Archives is attempting to recover.

Max Segal of HBO Archives is asking for assistance in obtaining any archives of programming from the first five years of HBO’s history (1972-76). Click the document to the right to see a list of the events and programming that HBO is looking to recover.

Veteran SVG members who may have saved some of those old 3/4 inch screeners or know of anyone who might are asked to contact Segal. Format of the footage is not a concern. In addition, any one with leads on a person or organization that may be able to assist in this search are also welcome.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Max Segal via e-mail at Max.Segal@hbo.com or by phone at 212-512-5780.
