Comment: Canadian Michael Caloz at least in pic 1 in a modern, colorful bedroom. Scene at 22 minutes. Not sure about pic 2,  according to my notes of my VHS this must also be from this movie but I haven’t found it online. A boy at least shirtless in this loft of a cabin.  Reminds me of much earlier settings like LHOTP. Who can help here?

I also have him in Whisker (1997) rating 6.

Rating 4-5 for pic 1 and 3-4 for the “bedroom” of pic 2. Obviously no siblings. Movie is quite poor.

There are (at least) 3 boys, probably brothers in this room. The 2 pictured from a colorful red metal bunk bed and an older teen boy, shirtless on the right in a separate bed.

I found a very short clip, showing the younger boy picking up a sticky paper handkerchief from the floor and holding it to the nose of the other boy pictured.

I don’t know the title and can’t say anything more. Might be Spanish, Mexican or similar or even just Spanish dubbed.

Who knows the title? Maybe from the 1990s (or even late 80s or early 2000s ?) Looks rather like a TV series or maybe even just a commercial?

Rating 6 for now.

A handsome boy, around 11 or 12 yo in this nice bedroom. Obviously from the early 1980s (TV set and computer monitor) and obviously in the US. Nice sitting and lying scene in dark blue, tight jeans.

I found this by coincidence on YouTube.

Who knows the title of this show or series ?

Maybe Mormon?

Quite interesting but looks more like a studio. And no siblings.

Rating 6.

Comment: At least 6 young choir boys sharing this bedroom. Maybe less or more in other rooms.

I’m sure that this documentary was aired and copyrighted in 2004, so probably produced in or around that year. By a quick search I couldn’t find out the title, but the German titly is most likely not the original title anyway. But I try to search for it by the airing date. Unfortunately I only have a short clip in bad quality somewhere on VHS.

Very interesting, though there are a lot of other similar and better choir documentaries. I even have 2 DVDs of this choir (a 1982 documentary and concert “Anthem’s From King’s” also including a short documentary, but I have to check these later, but probably this entry is better). See also Die Thomaner (2012) and “Le choer des enfants, Les Petits Chanteurs à La Croix de Bois” (rating 9 with bunk beds).

Rating 6. Looks much modern than the building.

Comment: Some boys and girls in small rooms, 2 beds, different arranged in other rooms. Not sure about the name of this documentary (series). Please comment if someone knows.

I searched a lot and found a short clip on one of my backup discs. I recorded (or digitized) this on July 1st, 2004 from channel (not The only documentary (besides travel magazines) was called “countdown nrw” which had been aired daily at 20.15 and there were 5 episodes of the same subject. First I though that this is about a youth hostel, a school and/or a trip, but I heard that this is a boarding school. I found some other subjects of this shows but no info at all about this episode(s).

My clip has a very low resolution and the sound quality is extremely bad due to my 2000s hardware. Not sure if I still have it somewhere on VHS or if I captured this directly from TV.

There are also scenes shown of a big lake and also 2 boys in underwear barefeet at a creek. I don’t know the name of this boarding school, but due to the channel it is probably in North-Rhine Westfalia. There are around 20 boarding school. Doesn’t look like a strict catholic boarding school. The channel (disfunct in 2005) was located in Dortmund, the nearest boarding school with a lake is Internat am Seilersee.

I somehow like this bedroom scene (although nothing much to see). Some boys in underwear, most teens are about 15, but also much younger and older kids are shown. One blond boy was interviewed wearing braces, blue clothes, blue cap, backside front.

Small washing room with few sinks. I have to check my old tapes when I have more time. Probably not availaible on DVD, however there must have been a possibility to buy it from the broadcasting company.

Rating 10.

This is unknown 2. Unknown 1 has been solved (Fortsetzung Folgt).
