Well, that's a bit dumb. It should be available on freeview!

I have no idea what is available of Freeview. Whats dumb about it being
available on Satellite to the whole of the Nation ? Or are you saying
its dumb showing the documentary only n BBC 1 in Scotland and not all
BBC 1s ? They, the BBC, probably think English people are not interested
in anything Scottish.

NB I may be wrong about the show being only one BBC 1 in Scotland BTW.

I mean that BBC Scotland should be available on freeview, as opposed to Sky
Digital.

Graeme has many admirers south of the border. His story is remarkable
enough to fascinate anyone whether Scots or not, whether a cyclist or
not. For non-cyclists, too, a glimpse into the bizarre world of the UCI
should make compelling television.

Yes, I think that's absolutely right, I'm not into sports cycling at
al[yawn]l, but his story is as interesting in it's human struggle as
it is in his cycling achievements.

Shame, I read his book and enjoyed it, I'd have watched the program
too.

Still, might drift south in time.

You're welcome, glad it may be of use.

Doh! Disappointed.

Someone please hijack QVC's Freeview channel &
re-broadcast the Obree prog. C'mon, I know there are
some hardcore techies here at u.r.c :) Non-violent
protest at its finest!

In the unlikely event that fails, could we organise a video ring: a Pass
the VHS-Parcel?

BBC Scotland is in Sky channel 961, I have 'booked' our equipment with
Mrs M and I'll try to remember to video it. Hopefully someone in
Scotland will too.

Pass-the-parcel sounds excellent. If we do it, please put me on the
list.

Just remembered I have a mate who has the Sky rig; I'll see if she can
tape it for me, too.

Still reckon the QVC idea's a goer, tho ;-)
