IS IT POSSIBLE TO RETRIEVE PREVIOUSLY ERASED VIDEO FOOTAGE

Hi guys.

I was wondering...is there a way to retrieve video data that HAS BEEN PREVIOUSLY ERASE?

Dumb question, I know. But (as always) I saw a film where the guy suggested he could retrieve
the data he had previously (accidentally) erased on 8mm.

I mean...is it possible. God, I had some great memories on a bunch of old 8mm tapes that my
children recorded over (arrghh).

If anyone can set me straight I'd appreciate it.

Merci a tous.

I didn't think that was possible . . . otherwise, you'd see evidence of previous footage while watching new footage. I have not seen that with the digital technology. It's theoretically possible with the older analog technology, where you'd see older footage mixed with the new. But complete recovery would not be possible.

Do you know the film's name, where you saw this being suggested? Or a link for us to look at?
