Internal Videos

The Family has produced a large number of videos for internal use. Starting in the late 1970s, Family Homes around the world were encouraged to make videos and send them to David Berg and World Services for eventual circulation and distribution within the organization. Video reports on local activities and video tapes of fellowship meetings were sent to David Berg and Karen Zerby and then added to the International Video Library (IVL) and/or a National Video Library (NVL).

David Berg also requested that female members perform in pornographic strip-tease dance videos to be sent to him and later circulated through the IVL and the NVLs. In Mo Letters such as "Glorify God in The Dance!" (PDF iconGlorify God In The Dance!--Cautions & Improvements for your Exotic Videos — DO 1026, 1981-07-24), Berg provided detailed and explicit instructions regarding what he wanted and didn't want to see in these videos. A number of the strip-tease dance videos featured children performing in what can only be described as child pornography. The girls performing for Berg and other Family members in these videos included children as young as 5 years old. Other child pornography videos produced by members of The Family at Berg's request featured girls ages 9 to 15. The videos also showed young children present while nude adult women performed sexually explicit strip-tease dances.

In the late 1980s, The Family finally removed many of these pornographic videos from circulation but failed to report the sexual abuse, exploitation and performance of children documented on these videos to law enforcement agencies. Some of these videos were stored in a storage facility in the Philippines. In 1992, former members Edward Priebe and Daniel Welsh took over a Family Home in Manila and later gained access to the storage facility from which they removed 16 trunks containing Family publications, documents, video and audio tapes. Some of the materials recovered were later submitted as evidence in child abuse court cases in various countries. Carefully edited excerpts of some of the pornographic videos have also been shown on television news reports from around the world. Please note that, due to moral, legal and ethical concerns, the Video Archives do not include pornographic videos featuring children or adults. Such material, with the exception of excerpts in television news reports, has been edited out of the videos we have archived.
