The VHS contains videos from several events held by ID&T in 1996. Tape duration: approx. 30:30. Movie duration: 29:16. Packaged in a cardboard slipcase.
There's no tracklisting, but the various events are listed on back cover with their location:
"- Earthqueake [sic] IV (Mysteryworld - Zaandam)
- Thunderdome XII Tour (several locations)
- Thunderdome XIII Tour (several locations)
- Thunderdome 1996 (Leeuwarden)
- Thunderdome XIV Tour (several locations)
- Heroes Of Hardcore (Vechtsebanen - Utrecht)".
The names of the events also appear in shorter forms in the video (as given in the tracklist above). Performing artists also also named on screen.

Tracks VHS-1 and VHS-3 to VHS-6 are in mono quality.
Track VHS-1 is a introduction and trailer, first showing the same text as on back cover (without the numerous spelling mistakes), then extracts of the following videos.
Back cover claims that "This tapes [sic] contains smashing previously unreleased footage of all the above mentioned events!". However, all videos from Various - Thunderdome XII - Caught In The Web Of Death, Various - Earthquake IV - The Ultimate Hardcore Collection, Various - Thunderdome XIII The Joke's On You, Various - Thunderdome '96 - Dance Or Die! and Various - Thunderdome XIV - Death Becomes You were already previously released in the respective video registrations of these tours and parties. Tracks VHS-4, VHS-6, VHS-7, VHS-8 and VHS-11 are significantly shorter here than on these source videos.
Track VHS-7 is a small part of [url]=]The Prophet[/url]'s DJ set that was just before DJ Delirium's performance on the original Thunderdome '96 video.
Track VHS-12 was sampled from the Various - Thunderdome XIV - Death Becomes YouThunderdome XIV[/url]; at the beginning, a very short part of the previous track on that compilation can be heard ("Booming Track" by Lady Dana & DJ Skorp).
During track VHS-13 a few technical credits appear on screen with the note "All rights reserved - 1996".
Note on back cover: "℗ 1996 © 1996"
