Media Day 1990 B-Roll: New Center, Downtown Hoedown, and Club Land
U-Matic S tape containing b-roll shot for the video 'E.T. Tourist' The Visit, produced by the City of Detroit's Department of Public Information for Media Day 1990. The footage features the New Center area, the 1990 Downtown Hoedown in Hart Plaza, and Adult Prom night at Club Land in the State Theatre.
The tape begins several exterior shot of the Motown Museum. Members of the camera crew can be heard talking in the background.
Next, the camera is positioned in the median of West Grand Boulevard, where it pans from flowers planted in the median, to the St. Regis Hotel sign in the media, and then over to the Hotel St. Regis on the north side of the street. A worker is then filmed planting flowers in the median, with the Cadillac Building in the background.
After a shot of traffic on West Grand Boulevard, the camera zooms from the sign on the exterior of the Normandie, to New Center Park in the foreground. Next the camera zooms between the sign for the Fisher Theatre and the Fisher Building. The Attic Theatre's sign and signs below in its windows promoting Coda and the Great Detroit Jazz Reunion are shown next. Afterward, the camera gets a Dutch angle shot of a Tastefest banner on a light pole, before returning to the exterior of the Attic Theatre. The New Center portion of the video ends with a shot of a New Center light pole banner.
The camera then moves to the 1990 Downtown Hoedown in Hart Plaza for shots of the crowd, a group of square dancers dancing with the Renaissance Center in the background, and a country band performing on the stage overlooking the amphitheater. The camera also gets shots transitioning from the Renaissance Center and the Dodge Fountain to the crowd seated in the amphitheater area. The camera also peers down on people, and a near the ramps leading to lower level. On Hart Plaza's surface level, after several other crowd shots, the camera finds an artist sketching a woman. More crowd shots follow.
At Hart Plaza's riverfront, the camera films several passing motorboats, and a child in a straw hat. Next people are filmed sitting on the steps of Hart Plaza's Pyramid, while two Detroit Police Department officers patrol the area. The Hoedown sections ends with brief shots of the crowd near the Dodge Fountain, and of the band on stage.
The final segment of the video shows the night club Club Land in the State Theatre, where an Adult Prom themed event is being held. The camera moves from the front entrance to the bar area, although the picture is dark. The club's disco ball, a monitor showing an animation with the Club Land logo, club goers waving to the camera are all featured in subsequent shots. While filming the marquee outside of the theater, the crew can be heard discussing plans for the video, 'E.T. Tourist' The Visit. They shoot several other takes of the entrance to the club, while trying to compensate for the low lighting. After returning to the club's exterior, the crew films valet parking attendants and arriving vehicles on Woodward Avenue. Inside, the crew films people dancing to Technotronic's Pump Up the Jam, Talking Heads' And She Was, and Paula Abdul's Straight Up. A wall of video monitors and several projection screens showing music videos decorate the stage.
The recording is on a 3M UCA 30S U-Matic S tape with a handwritten 3M label on its top, marked Club Land 1990. The tape is housed within a black plastic latching case with a matching label on its cover, marked Media Day 5-12-90, Hoedown, Clubland - Dancers, Logged. A two page handwritten shot list is included in the case.

Cultural Center, Parks. Bel Air Center, and Hamtramck Assembly B-Roll (1989)
U-Matic S tape containing b-roll footage shot of exteriors of The Dress Shop and institutions around the Cultural Center, interior shots of the Detroit Public Library Main Branch, footage shot around Chene Park, activity surrounding a swing set on Belle Isle, a series of stills showing Mayor Coleman A. Young, pans around the Bel Air Centre, a shot of the General Motors Cadillac Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Center sign, and two women working with a computer. The final three sequences are also featured on tape 2015.008.056.
The tape opens with a brief clip of Mayor Coleman A. Young at the beginning of the November 3, 1988 press conference concerning the change in format for the 1989 Detroit Grand Prix from Formula One to CART, presumably from an earlier recording on the tape (see tape 2015.008.126 for the full recording). Muffled audio from the press conference is still slightly audible throughout the rest of the tape.
The b-roll footage of then begins with a prolonged shot of the exterior of The Dress Shop on Woodward Avenue. Next the Woodward Avenue face of the Detroit Institute of Arts and Rodin's Thinker in front of the museum are featured in a series of shots. The camera then provides a view of the Woodward Avenue face of the Detroit Public Library's Main Branch across the street. People are filmed entering the building as traffic passes in the foreground. Then several shots feature the sign outside of the Woodward Avenue side of the Detroit Historical Museum. Afterward, several shots capture children playing on John Kearney's sculpture Silverbolt (Detroit Horse Power IV) outside of the Children's Museum. These are followed by shots of the entrance of the Museum of African American History on Frederick Street. Shots follow of people walking--past Wayne State University's State Hall, and on the southwestern side of the grounds of the Detroit Public Library's Main Branch.
After a shot of the Detroit Public Library sign outside the Main Branch, the camera moves inside for shots of three people reading or studying in different areas of the library.
After another break in the recording, the camera moves to Chene Park for several shots. The first shows the park's entrance at Chene Street and Atwater Street. The next is zoom from a close-up of the park's sign to the park's entrance. And the final shot is a view of the construction site of the amphitheater.
The next section of the tape takes place around the swing sets off the west side of Vista Drive on Belle Isle. Here the camera captures people waving while driving past, people relaxing on grass, children playing on the swings, and a man pushing a young child in a baby swing.
Following a brief clip from the Grand Prix press conference, the next portion of the tape has the camera lingering on a series of photographs of Mayor Coleman A. Young. The photos feature
Mayor Young seated beside President Jimmy Carter, Mayor Young and Lee Iacocca standing in front of a church's stained glass window, a black and white photo of Young in casual clothes posed with three other people (two women and one man), a black and white portrait of Young, Young and Governor William Milliken, Young and Dionne Warwick, and Young as a child in a group portrait (presumably a class photo).
The next segment on the tape includes several close-ups and pans across the businesses of Bel Air Centre on East Eight Mile Road, as shot from the shopping plaza's parking lot. From left to right the discernible businesses include Toys R Us, Kids R Us, Farmer Jack, Arbor Drugs, Wear-Guard, C & G Hallmark, Bel Air Men's Wear, Radio Shack, Coney Island, AMC 10 Theatres, Sibley's Shoes, Fashion Bug, Payless Shoe Source, 16 Plus, Charles, Nadon's, Winkelman's, Sally's Beauty Supplies, and Target. These shots are followed by a long shot of the mall's sign with Builders Square, Toys R Us, Target, Farmer Jack, and Kids R Us listed as the anchor stores.
The Bel Air Centre footage is followed by a single extended shot of the GM Cadillac Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Center sign as taken from the northeast, with the Greater Detroit Resource Recovery Facility, and East Grand Boulevard, and the embankments of the Edsel Ford Freeway in the background.
The next segment features a woman transcribing handwritten notes from Detroit stationery into a computer with an amber monitor and an 8 floppy drive, while another woman watches from over her shoulder. A shot list included with the tape identified the women as Wendy and Rose.
The recording is on a UCA-30s U-Matic S tape with a handwritten 3M label on its top. The tape is housed in a black plastic latching case with a handwritten City of Detroit Department of Public Information Video Production label on its cover. The case also contains a handwritten shot list.

Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago.
Learning by listening is a great way to:
- increases imagination and understanding
- improves your listening skills
- improves your own spoken accent
- learn while on the move
- reduce eye strain
Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone.
