You might be able to jerry rig up an adapter to record video from a VCR to a camcorder and save to the memory chip and then burn through a PC to the DVD or on the hard drive.
A cheaper way is to set your camera in front of the TV and hit record while the VCR plays and turn up the volume.

PAL will work here, I bought some DVD's from GB last year, and they emailed me warning about the NTSC/PAL format, my DVD player plays them just fine.

Something about that those massive 1980's bushy beavers on VHS tapes brings back so many memories.
