The Video Collection
The Video Collection was a video company based in the United Kingdom. It was formed in 1984 and established in 1985. Originally part of the Prestwich Group, based in New Southgate, London, it was subject to a management buyout headed by Steve Ayres as CEO and Paddy Toomey as managing director. The vision of 'Sell Through Video' was born with the strong Woolworths association driving the retail sales.
