Looking for "Out of Harm's Way" video
« on: May 07, 2011, 07:35:28 PM »

In 1990, the Red Cross and TWC joined forces to create a weather awareness video called "Out of Harm's Way."

The video is a treasure trove of TWC technology and graphics from 1989-90. Marshall Seese hosted the video.  There were segments such as "Flash Floods" and "Tornadoes" that featured maps of where these events commonly occur and then delved into what to do.  It had very cool music and animations.  Some of these animations were used in other TWC promos, such as the 1993 severe weather promo.

I have been attempting to find it.  There is a copy in the NJ state library, apparently.  I just thought I would post this in case anyone stumbles upon it.  It would air on a local public access station in my area in the 90's.  I think it would be an excellent find!

That sounds interesting. Might be worth posting some things if I can get it. I'll ask a few people.

Neither friend recalled "Out of Harm's Way." I get the feeling that this was a video TWC produced, but never aired.

Correct. It never aired on TWC. It was mainly created for emergency management applications and government access cable viewing. 

If anyone finds a copy on Ebay, it would be a great find.
