/ BBC2 Scotland - climbing broadcast
Should be able to get it on Sky!
Get right in there, set the recorder to long play :-)
what happens if it rains ? - are they all going to troop down to extreme dream, or spend a day walking round Aviemore looking at things in outdoor shops but not actually buying anything ??
+1 on the karma thing dude, lol.
Any ideas how we can get this down south at a better quality than pish internet streaming and for those with poor man's telly (freeview)?
Anyone fancy burning a dvd?
I'd give beer tokens aplenty to have a good copy of this, as I can't think how I'll be able to see it otherwise.
Hey, maybe that would be a good feature to add to UKC, virtual beer tokens for redemption at later dates... Could be rewards for good advice, dodgy dvd's, etc.... :-)
If not I too would send beer tokens aplenty to anyone who can drop the prog onto DVD.
Last time I looked it was BBC1 Scotland only :-(
The BBC has thought, it is only worth broadcasting 60 minutes of the climbing throughout the network. This decision was made in London.
I suspect those involved in the filming may package it up and release it on DVD afterwards in an edited format though.
By the way, you wanna go for a wee swallee sometime?
I've asked my Dad to do the same, he has a hard drive Sky box & a dvd recorder. I'm sorely tempted to scrape enough pennies together to get a hard drive dvd recorder too so I may have a go at it myself.
Hmmm, tempting, but maybe donations to MR before the beeb start legal action for breach of copyright!
I'm also happy to tape it on digibox, and anyone in the lincs region is more than welcome to either get a copy or come over for a beer one night!
signed in properly now!
Just to let people know the offer still stands. P and P donation to MRT for a copy
"The BBC has thought, it is only worth broadcasting 60 minutes of the climbing throughout the network. This decision was made in London"
There will be, however, at least 1 x London based news commentator (I'm hoping Kaplinsky)flown up to Scotland for the BBCNEWS24 newslink!! If, god forbid, anything untoward happens, provision has been made in the BBC budget for this number to increase!!!
sweet jeesus - not that they're hoping anything "untoward" might happen I'll bet..

Sorry! Didn't mean in the climbing! Was a rather badly put joke! Relates to when Glasgow airport was set on fire by extremists recently and the BBC flew umpteen London based reporters up to Glasgow to report on the News despite there being umpteen Glasgow based reporters already on scene!! What a fceking debacle!
"Lets hope the weather is good!"
SSShhhh! Don't tell anyone, but I'm pretty sure I saw Dave last week in Northern Corries!
Quite true and the roughly 3% of the license fee spent in Scotland needs to rise to readdress the inbalance. Oh aye, and Scotland isn't a region.
I'll try and record it and copy a DVD if you want.

I know - should have typed "regional" variations ;)
Thanks for that - I'm in Fort William next week - I'll bung a donation in for the local MRT for the previous DVD's
