I am led to believe the documentary took seven years to put together!

Well done for the perseverence Jamie, let alone the actual content  :)

Nice to read that me and Uli are not on our own. For a second I thought I was going slighly mad.

Friday 1st June : "Punk Britannia" & "We Who Wait: TV Smith & the Adverts"

Really enjoyed that We Who Wait, has me thinking I need Adverts etc in my collection. Not sure why they're not already there. An oversight obviously.
Looked for live stuff yesterday and found there was a live dvd on Dime of Adverts revisited backed by a group called The Valentines. So surprised they didn't mention him having done that, i'm assuming it was a tour not a one-off.

Good morning TUTS! Apologies for a long absence, I've not posted here for ages due to being incredibly busy with all sorts of stuff that you don't want to hear about.
I have to admit I've been keeping up with things on Facebook but not here sadly.
Now, having been away at the time of the screening of WWW and Punk Britannia I haven't yet seen either. I have a problem with the BBC iPlayer, it argues with something in my cranky old computer. I've had no luck getting it sorted so has anyone yet found a site that I can download and burn them onto DVD? Preferably in HD resolution (if they were actually transmitted as such)? Has anyone got either or both onto DVD yet? If so I'm happy to pay for copies and postage and of course a pint at the next gig I get to (if you happen to be there of course)!

Dim spark.

Finally back fron my holiday in Devon.

How appropriate.

And able to watch We Who Wait in the comfort of my own home.

I think the problem I had with the end was just that.

It ended.

I wanted it to never end.

Magnificent. 8)

Just watched it for a third time. It's getting addictive. 8)

I've gone from feeling that it all ended too quick to feeling that the ending is the highlight of the DVD. Especially the closing words from Dave Thompson, Attila and TV.  :D :'(

Now when can I watch it again? :-\
