Plea for "Bill Oddie Goes Wild" BBCTV programmes
Has anyone got any episodes of "Bill Oddie Goes Wild" BBCTV wildlife programmes on VHS videotape or DVD? These were first broadcast between 2001 and 2003 and may well have been repeated since. These are absolutely fantastic programmes, brilliantly presented by Bill Oddie. As I am very keen to see these again. Some of the episodes I have are of either poor quality (there was sometimes very poor reception at my old address at Oulton Broad) and were contained on a VHS tape I had with 2 episodes has just snapped in the video player. There appears to be nowhere where I can get this tape repaired. I also cannot undo the plastic screws to try a DIY job myself. Does anyone know if these are repeated on a Sky satellite/ cable station and could these be recorded onto DVD for me, please? I am willing to pay money for the loan of any episodes you may have. I particularly want the episodes: Series 1: Speyside in Spring, Merseyside in early Spring, Dorset in late Spring Series 2: Scilly Isles, Dartmoor, London Series 3: Somerset Levels, A Voyage to St Kilda & Tyneside. Any help anyone can offer would be very gratefully received. UPDATE: Have just found 2 episodes Northumberland in Early Summer & Norfolk Broads. I have also located a professional tape repair and DVD transfer service in Loddon, charging very reasonable rates, so will use them. But I still am desperate for any of the above episodes.
