How do I say the exact same without using 'of' three times?

This video contains a lot of footage of well-known events of the last 80 years.

Try this:

This video contains extensive footage of well-known events from the last 80 years.

"Contain" works fine here, but if you want to emphasize the footage in the video, you can use "feature"

This video features extensive footage of well-known events from the past 80 years.

  • Thanks! Is the following sentence okay? The video doesn't contain any flashbacks, but it does contain extensive footage of well known events from the past 80 years. – Rowan Dec 21 '19 at 15:01
  • @Rowan Yeah it is a valid sentence. – Eddie Kal Dec 21 '19 at 15:05
  • thanks again! But what is the exact meaning of 'extensive'? Google says: covering or affecting a large area. But I don't think this is what you mean. – Rowan Dec 21 '19 at 23:14
