One of the crowning jewels in the post-M*A*S*H celebratory events is the 30th-anniversary reunion. But like any priceless gem, it’s incredibly rare to find. Perhaps the most common place to see it is on YouTube. Users have uploaded versions of varying quality, but ScreenRant names the one shared by Track&Field Fan as probably the best.

In fact, the outlet notes, that version is like two blasts from the past in one, since the footage is very reminiscent of 2002; the ads and video effects are all staples of the era.

What exactly can you expect from the reunion event?

What is particularly special about this M*A*S*H 30th anniversary reunion event is how all-encompassing it is. Though some stars such as McLean Stevenson, who played Colonel Blake, have since passed away, he and others are present through archival footage. As for those that remain, key players like co-creator Larry Gelbert, and stars Alan Alda and Loretta Swit partake in interviews about the show.

Some topics of conversation include the unique trajectory the show’s fame enjoyed. It started as a book, then a film, then a show with less-than-stellar ratings. But by the end, the M*A*S*H series finale became the most-watched episode of scripted television in history. Take a step back in time with this special anniversary as M*A*S*H turns 50!
