Hi Brian, thanks for posting the link. Unfortunately BBC I-player doesn't work when you access the web from a different country than the UK. You can try to use a proxy but they aren't very reliable. If anyone out there has a solution please post it here, I'm convinced MANY people will appreciate it
I have all the equipment to record the Alba/Islay documentary BUT despite spending a considerable amount of time with the instruction booklet I have got nowhere. HOWEVER, spurred on by comments re the programme I have good friends who have recorded first prog. and who will record the other three. The recording will be on video BUT have facility on my "too technical for me" equipment to convert video to DVD and will do my best even if I have to import someone to help!!!!
So do not despair all those Forum Readers who just love Islay - I`ll do my best for you. I watched prog. twice and loved it.
You will all realise what an effort all this technology is for me when I tell you that this is the second attempt at posting a reply. Lost first one when I tried to reveiw it so this comes as it stands warts and all!!!!
Great news.So if you need any assistance to convert from video to dvd don^t hesitate to contact me.you can also send me the video tape and i will convert the tape into dvd. The only thing is, that the tape has to be in PAL otherwise i can^t convert.Here is my email-adress: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thoroughly enjoying this series , the highlight of the 2nd programme was seeing Graham Allison , owner of the Port Charlotte Hotel , singing in Gaelic ! Didn't know he could sing in English ! Nice seeing some familiar faces in it .
Duncan from Laddie , Mary from Laddie in the background of the wedding at the distillery , Graham from the PCH , Janice from the Bowmore Tourist Centre and Ruaridh McLeod , possibly the oldest living Distiller !
As I`m back from my holidays in Austria and Mag make it possible to send me a DVD with this documentary.
If there`s anybody interested in it, please let me know, I will send you a copy of the DVD. ItÂ´s in PAL with a
resolution of 720x576.
All the honour goes to Mag, who have all the efforts to make a copy of this.
The Maggie is one of Ealing studios lesser known comedies. A wily old skipper of a Western Isles 'Puffer' and his motley crew lead all who come into contact with them a fine old time! Many scenes on Islay!
