If the recorder has picked up the earlier start, then should be ok to do some copies.

Not home till Wednesday, so may not be able to check until Saturday.

Arrived at Interlaken at lunch-time, went into the tourist info to be greeted by a picture of DTH who are playing St Gallen next month.



Hi EastkentTaff,
nice to read, we have seen DTH in Innsbruck last week on 28. May, over Stage on the video-wall I saw T. V. Smith in the snow, I think that was a film from the ''Magical Mistery Tour'' on Zugspitze years before. Tim wrote from this in his Tour-Diaries.
DTH will play tomorrow night at ''Rock am Ring'' and would be send on TV at German ''Eins Plus''. I am sure you can see that in St. Gallen or wherever you are in  Switzerland. DTH are with their new Album on Place Nr. 1 in Österreich, Deutschland und der Schweiz.

Grüßle
Ilona
Hope you understand, I tried my very best.  ;)

Hi PhilC, you did get tosee TV's other OGWT song on We Who Wat. It was Drowning Men. Been We Who Waited to see that for 35 years. :D

On the subject of a DVDR copy...

As expected, the doc appeared to be* transmitted in 16:9 format which is the BBC standard. However it was shot and mastered in 4:3 which meant when transmitted, the picture was "stretched" to fill the widescreen format (something that could be corrected, as per my instructions, using the ratio option on the TV remote.

Not that I would endorse such a thing but, hypothetically, should a DVD copy be made from the broadcast, it would be great if this could be corrected and the native ratio restored to 4:3. See the correctly formatted iPlayer stream to see how the doc ought to look.

Also, the transmitted version is missing a rather important shot in the Gary Gilmore's Eyes film sequence which I have now had reinstated. I will make a correctly-formatted DVD for contributors in a few weeks time with that missing shot included.

This will be the closest thing to a director's cut to be made available and may well make its way into hand-to-hand distribution. Once contributors have copies, what they do with them will be out of my hands...

* I've had conflicting reports about this actually. It could be my own set up (settop box, media player and TV all interconnected) is so complex that one setting in one link of this daisy chain was screwing up my signal...

Watched it three times yesterday!  :)

Fantastic stuff, Jamie. Really well spaced content, with just the right amount of time and footage given to each part of Tim's career. The 'Gary...' film was fun, really great to see the OGWT clip again after all this time and finding out things I never knew beforehand, good and bad (I didn't know that Gaye hit the bottle so hard, for instance).

Think I'll watch it again later  ;)

Brilliant - my wife enjoyed it too; she only knows TV for his solo stuff and was surprised by the punk back story...

Looking forward to the Director's Cut!

I think I remember someone telling me that The Adverts recorded three songs for OGWT , obviously Bored Teenagers was one, we now know Drowning Men was the other, hope that the third one (if there was a third) surfaces over the next couple of weeks.

I'm not sure that a/the third song was recorded Claret.

An interesting comment about the right amount of time on each part ov TV's career. It will be interesting to do a time log to see how much time in the video was spent on each decade. For me it felt like the past 20 solo years lasted just a few minutes. For me TV's career has been more of a rise and fall and rise again.

Can't wait to watch it again though. :D

And for anyone who hasn't seen it, recorded it or simply wants to watch again it's repeated tonight, as is Punk Britannia PT.1 and 'Evidently....'.

Dave's book says that Bored Teenagers, Drowning Men and Great British Mistake were recorded for the OGWT.
