Just want to say thanks for your impressive contribution of Countdown episodes you put up on DropBox. I noticed you kept updating it with more episodes, which was awesome. The link is now defunct, but what you put on there was just fantastic! Thanks.
Is it you who uploads cricket videos to YouTube. If so, then I wanted to thank you for all those. They made the lock down bearable!
Yes that is me!!
Hi there. Just stumbled across this forum. I have been Rage-ripping Countdown for a few years now. I'll be very surprised if I have anything precious but a list of the MPGs I have is below. Let me know if you want anything I can put it on FileFactory.
One question. It looks like Rage put the same date on '1982-04-11 Duran Duran" and "1982-04-11 Starstruck". This looks like a mistake. When were these episodes broadcast?
Also, I don't have many episodes from 1984 and 1985 which is disappointing. If someone can share some of their favourite episodes from these two years I'd be extremely grateful.

Hi, can anybody help me and post the Countdown episode of May 6, 1979 in very good quality?
I would be very grateful.
One of my external hard drives crashed and I lost these episodes (I should have backed them up), so I really appreciate you doing this for me ..... thank you.
Thanks for the reply Luuuc, it looks like Grant will be uploading them again so I will grab them there as it will be the easiest option (just grabbed the first one, in .mkv and a good file size so looks to be exactly what I want). I do appreciate the offer though.
With all the complaining that you read every day on the internet on just about everything, I just want to put out a thanks to everyone here. Going back a few years, there were people holding on to some episodes like they were solid gold and refusing to share or trade. I purchased a large group of episodes years back, and teamed up with Kiersey giving him access to what I had, and in return getting access to the trades he could make.
The last few years, I think we have seen a much more relaxed and helpful atmosphere where people have gone out of there way to help each other and with swapping and trading. Google Drive, Microsoft Onedrive, Dropbox and other cloud services have also made things a lot easier for everyone. So a big thumbs up to all those who have taken the time to help others.
Grants account seems fine to me ? I just got the other 2.
I'll upload them to my Google Drive account in case anyone is having an issue. The link is a few posts back - and you will probably need to give me an hour from now before they are there.
Thanks again Grant.
Edit : Mine have uploaded if anyone is still having trouble

I hope someone can help. Thank you in advance.
I have a lot of my RAGE Countdowns still sitting on VHS tapes. I was also taping from 1993 onwards.
Although I did make the mistake for the first year or two, of only recording stuff I liked.
I just haven't had the time to sit down and transfer them to digital format.
Thank you very much all who answered me. The Geordie was twice in GTK that was showed last year in Australian TV. One include video Black Cat Woman (GTK 1974) and second She's a teaser. Black cat woman I have got but this second video NOT.
If someone recorded both, please share for me. Thanks again and greetings from Poland
I've had a look and I think I've found the GTK episodes featuring Georgie that you're looking for.
Have a look in the Requests folder.
Wow, I knew that are good people in the world yet. Thank you so much. If you are looking for something, please say, maybe I have it, then I upload it.
Hi everyone. I have resurrected an old Topfield set-top box and I'm back in action grabbing Countdown episodes from rage!
Unfortunately the recorder I used last year let me down with some crazy encryption that I could not hack. Does anyone have the episodes that were aired last summer (2021)?
Also, any opinions on sharing files from OneDrive? Is it a good platform to use? I want archive the episodes I have in the cloud, OneDrive seems convenient but expensive.
I have last year's episodes here:
Look in the folder "HDTVRips - Untouched".
I've used OneDrive for years and it has served me well. Thanks to a free 200GB bonus for being a Telstra customer many years ago I've never had to pay for it. :)
Hi Grant, my one drive access to the files has stopped working, are you able to send me a new link please,
Hi grant, I had access till this morning, but its expired for some reason , are you able to provide me with an upnto date link to the countdown episode.
Does anybody have all the week 2 countdown episodes, as only 2 episodes have been uploaded, if anybody has an alternative link it would be greatly appreciated.
So which episode is supposedly missing then? ❓🙀🖐🤷♀️💥🎵👀
It's working again now, dont know why uts stopping and starting, must be a technical issue at my end.
Episode wise, there's 9nly 3x episodes from week 1 2022, and 2 from weekb2?
There were only 2 Countdown episodes aired on Rage this week.
COUNTDOWN October 16, 1983 (392: Brian Mannix from Uncanny X-Men) (ABC)
COUNTDOWN June 21, 1981 (290: Jon English) (ABC)
Thanks for the clarification, looking fwd to more episodes next week then, cheers Grant. 💯😉👊👊
Hey. For anyone interested (who may not have this).
I made a quick copy of the Countdown VHS released years ago.
Cover included as a scan.
Hi if anyone can provide a decent d/l link for he Beat Box episode which aired last week I would appreciate it. I have it on a HDD recorder but converting that to a digital file is a pain in the ass....
Uploading Beatbox to my OneDrive now.. Should be there soon..
Just thought I would chime in with some ideas for you all on how to share your recordings.
Onedrive and gdrive links are risky, whilst they work, hosting copyrighted works could be problematic, if they are reported to copyright holders you could have your One Drive or Gdrive account terminated, this would be lower risk if you are not posting those links on a public message board.
In one drive and Gdrive, If you share folders between users, there is a cool Apple TV app called Infuse which, if you use the paid version, will allow you to stream from your cloud drive (Gdrive, OneDrive and pCloud). This could be very handy if you have a lot of recordings on the cloud or if you have been given access to an shared cloud folder (you can just stream the recordings right through your apple TV).
Another option, not using the cloud, could be using something like SoulSeek, it's a simple peer 2 peer program, you share your private folder between authorised users and exchange recordings that way, if you upload speed is slow, it won't really matter as eventually the data will transfer across. There's no risk to your paid cloud storage when sharing, it's also free.
Nothing that's free. Unlisted on Youtube won't work, the music videos will prompt the videos to be blocked.
You could have one Google Workspace account which provides 2TB of storage, but it costs about $18 per month, and if people want to upload or contribute, they can so so by making a free Gdrive (you get 15GB for free), they create an upload folder, upload the video to that, then they share their Upload folder with the Workspace account, then whoever is running that account they can just Copy the video to the main collection, the contributor could then delete their copy, freeing up space in their drive to share more content.
It might be a bit of a learning curve, but whoever is managing the main Workspace account could control who they share the recordings with, but authorised users would be able to access and stream the content freely, they wouldn't have to pay for a workspace account.
Another option could be pDrive, that doesn't have a monthly cost but rather it has a one off, lifetime option, but it's $500 AUD for 2TB (sometimes they do specials), but I guess if you got a few users to contribute, or you charge for access, it could be viable.
Ok put your thinking caps on. Surely in this day and age there is some way for everyone to make their whole collections available in a way that is FREE OF COST for anyone who wants to download the whole thing and preferably without having to interact with anyone and not having to even say so much as a thank you. Do better please it must be possible.
OK peeps I am coming to the end of the tunnel with this collecting rage repeated C/D episodes. Only got 4 episodes to go. If anyone can help out with these 4 episodes I would greatly appreciate it. I have stacks of other episodes if anyone wants to trade. Cheers, kiersey....xxx

I just realized I'm missing 18/12/1983 with Pseudo Echo, I saw it on YouTube with the rage logo. How did I miss that one? Anyone have a copy?
Also, I'd love to get my hands on:
* the Ramones episode from 1980
* the B-52s episode where they performed Private Idaho and Rock Lobster.
I seem to remember Molly had a lobster on his head.
Did these episodes make it on to rage?
Thanks in advance. 😎
