Background: RKO General operated a home video division in the early 1980s, releasing primarily the RKO Pictures library. On [pictures home video&hl=en&sa=X&ei=WcWuU6bhG4aqyATVnoBI&ved=0CDUQ6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q=rko pictures home video&f=false|December 10, 1987], RKO dismantled its video division after Ted Turner acquired distribution rights to the library. Several RKO videos were later reprinted by Turner Home Entertainment, with some released with RKO's original packaging.


Nicknames: "The Thunderbolt", "Thunderbolt of Boredom"

Logo: On a black background, the 1983-1992 RKO Pictures/Televisionlogo is seen still, but with "HOMEVIDEO" instead on the right with a slightly larger "V".
