If you have friends high-up in the CIA, FBI or a spy agency, maybe. Otherwise, no. Sorry.
Hi Oops! I recorded over something important on DV, is there anything can do to retrieve or view what's underneath?
All the best,

Not this time. Next time, remember to use the write protect tab - that's what it's there for.
Or shoot in film. Too pricey, you say? Fine, go shoot it again - after all, a reshoot in video doesn't cost anything, does it?

... it is then a sad moment in history for such a unique occurance to slip away into the graveyard of times that have been....and of all that has been lost... forgotten and neglected....amen..
Been there, done that. The real trick is only needing to learn this particular lesson once.
And yes, the record/lock tab on a videocassette is a simple thing, but man, oh man can it ever be a lifesaver!
(I also make backup copies of "important" tapes, too, and keep the backup "off site".)
