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.

In reply to Burnsie: Haha, good one! Perhaps Dave might not do the hard route then, but they might film them just doing easier stuff in the pissing rain? And I know that some non live filming is being done so that will add to the 6hrs also.

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?

In reply to catt: Dave80 is going to burn it on to DVD, and I'm sure if you ask nicely and offer him some beer tokens, he might oblige!
catt on 09 Aug 2007
In reply to nick nc:

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.... :-)

In reply to nick nc: I said I was going to try!!! Can't promise anything until after the event though

In reply to fxceltic: Anyone know if Virgin cable service carries BEEB2 Scotland?

If not I too would send beer tokens aplenty to anyone who can drop the prog onto DVD.

The BBC has thought, it is only worth broadcasting 60 minutes of the climbing throughout the network. This decision was made in London.

I wouldn't mind getting a decent copy of this somehow too.

I suspect those involved in the filming may package it up and release it on DVD afterwards in an edited format though.

In reply to slacky: This is where the BBC come unstuck with their licence - I pay my TV licence for a nationally available service. Don't see any disclaimers on there about regional variations.......

In reply to All: If I do manage to get it onto DVD (I'm praying my digibox has enough memory left to record it first!) then I'll let folk know and may be persuaded to make a few copie.......
nick nc on 09 Aug 2007
In reply to Dave80: My digibox definitely has enough memory; I just can't link it to my laptop to burn it. But if you have a DVD burner that can plug into it, between the two of us, we could have a winner. I'm going to record it anyway, so if you have a problem, just let me know.

By the way, you wanna go for a wee swallee sometime?

Hi Nick/Dave
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.

In reply to Mike C: Mmm, I'm now wondering how many poeple we will have interested in a copy. How much do you think we can sell them for? Reckon we could supplement our measly incomes??
Mike C on 09 Aug 2007
In reply to nick nc:

Hmmm, tempting, but maybe donations to MR before the beeb start legal action for breach of copyright!
nick nc on 09 Aug 2007
In reply to Mike C: Oooh, yeah like that idea. Ace. I'm up for that. Was only joking before about charging for it, but if proceeds go to MRT....great idea.

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!!!

"If, god forbid, anything untoward happens,"

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!

In reply to fxceltic: It is on BBC Scotland which you can receive on Sky, I have just programmed on my Sky + box. Also I will be recording it onto my sony hardrive which means I can transfer the programme onto recordable dvd's. Lets hope the weather is good!

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
