From Walter Cronkite's summer science series "Universe" from 1982. The "Tron" effects team films Cronkite in 65mm B&W and uses the same technique to insert him into the animated world as was used on the movie. How many tens of thousands of dollars did it cost them to shoot and animate a minute of finished film like this?

Recorded via and archived in Betamax® format. Sorry about the poor quality which stems from the co-channel interference on the broadcast reception at the time of the recording.
