AbstractA system is described for replaying, in any selected sequence, programs recorded on a tape. The system is adapted to read a tape having tape location information and program location information thereon. In a preferred embodiment, a keyboard is included for selecting desired programs for replay in any sequence. In response to that selection, a controller determines from the program location information where the selected programs begin and end on the tape and causes those programs to be replayed in the sequence selected.Preferably, the system also permits replay of any tape segment or part of a recorded program by operator input of tape location information corresponding to the starting and stopping tape locations of the selected tape segments.
