1. A video indexing method, comprising the steps of:

  • recording a video program having time-sequential frames representative of motion imagery and an associated playback speed;

    separately storing a subset of the frames representative of segments of the program which are spaced apart in time;

    sequencing through the recorded video program at a rate in excess of the playback speed; and

    monitoring the progress of the sequencing by displaying the frames of the subset rather than the corresponding frames of the program.
