A DVD with assorted news-clips and discourse-clips. Source of this is unclear, may have been compiled by Chidvilas. However, the title of the Viha-DVD was obviously given in or after 1989.
It starts with the intro and first 5 minutes of Zen The Diamond Thunderbolt ~ 03, with very bad sound quality. Unclear how this is related, maybe an error. We have disregarded this part in the timing below.
00:00 - 21:38 - the full interview with Ted Koppel, Nightline, ABC-TV via a phone line: The Last Testament (Vol 3) ~ 09 on Sept 30, 1985. Unique, as this footage has much more of Osho walking from his car to the auditorium and back afterwards, discussing with Ma Prem Hasya and Ma Yoga Vivek. So this was 1 month before his arrest, the interview may have been used by way of an introduction.
21:39 - 23:48 - Footage from an unknown interview, the text is not traceable on the CD-ROM. Location is not known, but Osho is in a jail-suit, possibly Charlotte Jail.
23:49 - 29:55 - Press Conferences ~ 07 (Oct 29, 1985) from the beginning to question 6 (from a total of 29 questions). This footage is unique in the sense that both video and audio are not available from the usual sources.
29:56 - end is a series of flashes by US news outlets, about Osho in jail, being transported by plane, etc.
