I was reading on one of the other topics in Fiver's Honeycomb where people were wandering where they could find the ' making of' features for the tv series.
I have found it on the german winter on watersip down vhs and have just bought it off ebay, unfortunately i don't think there is any more on there so i took the last one, sorry  :doh
But keep an eye out for it, just type into the search engine german ebay and since i have google crome it translated the whole page for me from german to english.
Hopefully when it arrives for me in a week or so ill try and get some of it posted for you all to see so you don't all miss out on this rare piece  :yes  :goodluck

That would be great if it can get posted online somewhere. :) :yes  Thank you for taking the time to do this.  (I live in the US and cannot get PAL vhs tapes to play in any equipment over here, so purchasing one is not like purchasing a Region 2 DVD).

Take your time. :)  I'd buy your copy of the Winter version, but I have nothing that will play a PAL videotape here in the states.  Sorry.

Just a quick bump on the topic....if you managed to get the tape to at least a PAL DVD, I would be interested in that.
