I'm interested in the technology, but I'm on the wrong side of the world to
add these to my collection.  I have a few U-Matic tapes, but haven't found a
player yet.

To make this slightly less off topic, three of the U-Matic tapes I have are
in an SRA Computer Training Library boxed set containing:

    MVS Concepts and Facilities - Mini-Course 2 - Introduction to Job

    MVS Concepts and Facilities - Mini-Course 5 - MVS System Programs

    MVS:  JCL Coding - Mini-Course 11 - Requesting Space for DASD Data Sets

I found them in my current employer's document library years ago.  Any
player(s) we had were long gone, so I've never seen them.
