For the Bo & Hope #1 and #2, and the first part of the #3, I've remastered some existing tapes I had. I had received tapes over the years from several different sources. Most of the tapes were surprisingly good quality, some more complete during some time frame than others. So using a hard drive recorder, I was able to transfer all of the footage I had of Bo & Hope from 1983 and into early 1984 from several different sources from multiple tapes. I was able to do all the editing on the hard drive computer, then burn it to dvd with little if any quality loss. This resulted in being able to offer slightly more complete edits, and in the best possible quality from that time frame from all of the various sources. So I was able to use the vhs tapes with the best quality and most complete, and this varied from different time frames. 

Also, I have several Days of Our Lives 1983-1992 episodes available.

Bo & Hope #1 June - into early Fall, 1983: 8 hrs
The Bo & Hope #1 is primarily edited to Bo & Hope's scenes together. Its really a wonderful edit of their early romance and I so very much enjoyed watching this. I had forgotten how much I loved this couple way back when! This edit contains Bo's arrival in Salem, meeting Marlena and Hope. Hope follows Bo around, then she runs away from home and Bo tracks her down and arrives just in time to rescue her during an attack, contains Hope's crush on Roman and following up to the cabin during his fishing trip and coming onto him, fourth of July picnic when Hope kisses Bo for the first time while manning the kissing booth, their second kiss during a fantasy sequence. Hope takes care of Bo after the Vipers stab him, Bo becomes a private detective and is hired to investigate corruption at the prison Liz is being held in, Hope follows him and pretends to be his wife.  Click here to read the full edit description.

Bo & Hope #2 1983 Early Fall - December 1983: 8 hrs
This is a new description for the Bo & Hope #2 edit. I've added about 6 hours of additional scenes to this edit. I took the existing edit and combined footage from several different sources from other tapes I've received over the years to create a more complete edit. This edit contains the end of the prison story, plans begin for Hope's 18th birthday, and Roman being arrested for murder. Mrs. H and Bo break Roman out of jail (she feeds Roman tainted donuts that make him ill). Bo believes in his brother's innocence and investigates the murders on his own, and meets with Roman in secret. Hope's 18th birthday party, afterwards Bo tells her that he loves her. I also added edited Bo & Hope scenes from the soapnet marathon that recently aired the episode of Doug bursting in as they are about to make love, he gets very upset and has a heart attack (also included Kirsten and Peter's commentary during this section). Hope breaks up with Bo to keep the peace with her father, Bo continues to help Roman hide out and finally puts him in Eugene's basement. At the end of the edit, a look alike Roman enters Hope's bedroom and tries to kill her! Click here to read the full edit description.

Bo & Hope #3 Feb ? - April 2, 1984: 8 hrs
I have completed the Bo & Hope #3, this is also an 8 hr edit. The first two hours or so came from a couple of other edits from different sources. The quality on that portion is only okay, only so-so in some sections, its very watchable but not as good as most of the scenes on the first two edits. I have complete very good quality episodes from late Feb into June, 1984 that I will continue to edit from. So I used those episodes for the last 6 hours of this edit and the quality is quite good on that portion. Unfortunately there is a bit of a gap between the two sources.  Click here to read the full edit description.
