If you have a friend on who you think you can rely, you are a lucky man

I have a favour to ask of LJ friends...

One of my long-standing filmic gripes is that so few of Lindsay Anderson's films are available. Britannia Hospital is available on DVD, as is This Sporting Life. Neither If.... nor O Lucky Man! are available on DVD; both have been on video, but even those are now out of print.

It turns out that Sky are running a 'Not Available In The Shops' season on Sky Cinema 1, and that they're showing O Lucky Man! at 10pm on Thursday 30th November. Would one of you lovely, lovely people on LJ with satellite TV be able to record it for me in exchange for a redeemable favour? The film's three hours long, so you should just be able to fit it on an E-180 tape (alternatively, if you're able to burn it to a DVD, that would be preferable to video tape).

I will email myself at home to remind me to set sky+ tonight and, assuming that goes well, I can put it to DVD. If someone else is doing similarly then I'll feel reassured in case I cock it up *&)

sky+ duly programmed, and for barbarella which is on on Saturday too (I've never seen it!)

Excellent - enjoy Barbarella!

Doh! Have deleted my comment after I realised it is on a Sky channel I don't actually have...

I am happy to tell my sky+ to grab this as a back up plan. I also still need to know what gaming books you want.

Would help, but I declined to take any of Murdoch's channels that you have to pay for.

Re: Meanwhile...

All is fine - garklet shows no signs of emerging, and we're got another antenatal appointment this morning.
