Here Are The Young Men is the first official Joy Division video comprising live tracks and, uncredited, the promotional video for Love Will Tear Us Apart. This video was given the Factory Catalogue number FACT 37 and was released on both VHS and Betamax in September 1982. Though it was FACT 37 in the official Factory catalogue it was also given the Ikon catalogue number Ikon 2 which in some cases appears on the video cassette itself (see below). Other versions have a 'Factory' F-symbol label which also features on the front cover.

Early copies were available in a cardboard flip-top 'cigarette-type' case whereas later ones came in a standard plastic library case with a card insert. In true Factory style there is very little information on the insert: the tracklisting, running time and music publisher (Fractured Music, Joy Division's publishing company).

The quality of the video itself is notoriously poor but this is generally due to the quality of the source live footage rather than the video recording quality.
