I thought series 2 was available from Memphis Bell on DVD.
I'm tempted to get this.
I don't think there will be any problem technically, but does anyone know
how reliable the company is as far as shipping and delivery to the UK is
I am always a bit wary as far as internet orders from Europe are concerned,
had some bad experiences in the past. Stark contrast to stuff I have got
from the USA which has always turned up within a week or so!
I am sure there are professional services for transferring VHS tape to DVD,
search http://www.google.co.uk or look in your local Yellow pages. Though I
suspect it will cost much more than buying the commercial DVDs (if
available). Also some services might be wary about BBC copyright programs.
It is odd that the Onedin Line is not available in its entirety. I suspect a
combination of it just being so big (90 odd episodes) and rights permissions
and payment to the cast. I would personally be happy with a repeat now I am
set up to capture to disc.
I will need to redo "Danger Level" as simply re-encoding the version you
have to make it play universally degrades the quality. It will be with
series 4 when I start sending them.
