CFMT-MTV Did not bulk erase the video tapes. Jeff Silverman the shows producer was negotiating with the station for more money for the next season,(1st year budget was 350,000,450,000 was needed for the 2nd year,and the station wanted to cut the existing budget by 100,000 to 250,000)when talks turned sour, Jeff had his crew erase all the shows to prevent the station from stealing his show on their video tapes and running the show in re-runs.Selected show segments still exist as part of a private collection in Erroll Bruce's possession on 3/4"u-matic tapes and a former crew members VHS copies.

During the early 80's the producers made a 2hr version of the show for mass distribution that did not quite have the magic of the original series of shows but it put the memory of the show in fans minds for a few more years
