I believe there is a website for V2000 owners (someone here will probably have the address). I would keep hold of the tapes - at least until you have identified what's on them - as they just MAY contain something of value; there are missing programmes from the late '70s / early '80s (particularly companies like ATV, Southern etc) and also there may be interesting continuity announcements or regional news programmes that will not survive elsewhere. Just a possibility, mind, but it's best to play it safe!
No fear about dumping them - I am a dedicated locator of radio material (running britishcomedy.org.uk etc.) so know the ropes. This is how the tapes have surfaced, through a radio collection. They were recorded in Carlisle so may have regional stuff on from there. I will have them by the end of Sept and someone has already come forward to help with the transferring and logging of contents.
