I watched this twice. It was very compelling to me.

I haven't watched all of it because I'm at work ;) but two comments:
1) interesting how all of the first moments of the video footage are focused on the ballet/flexibility. 10 minutes in and I still haven't seen any tumbling. Such a far cry from where we are now.
2) I think my dd would love to play around with old uneven bar routines. They are mesmerizing!

Later in the video they tumble and to be honest I was impressed with some of the skills I watched, for 1978, it was way more than I expected.

I loved the live piano music during competition.
