What happened to the EC @ the BBC dvd?

Postby caliban10 » Fri Nov 02, 2007 7:11 am

It was announced earlier this year that there would be an EC at the BBC DVD coming out this autumn. What happened to it? Is there a new date for it? Was it really just wishful thinking on someone's part?

First I've heard of it, but I'd love to see it.

There are blinding versions of Uncomplicated and I Hope You're Happy Now from Whistle Test 1986.

Also remember a great duet with his dad on Ray Charles's Georgia from some arts review show with Russell Davies.

And I believe he did Clubland or Beyond Belief on Swap Shop! How weird would that be????!!!

Clubland and Hoover Factory on Swap Shop I seem to recall. I'd love to see that again!

I think he did Beyond Belief on Pebble Mill at One.

This is the first I've heard of this DVD. Where did you get this information from caliban10?

Thanks.

I can still safely say I didn't know anything about this (until now!).

Hopefully it'll include his appearance on the Russell Harty show complete with Kevin Turvey's interruptions!

Nice to see another Celt on here!

Looking forward to this DVD as well, can't wait to hear what will be on it (if it ever surfaces!)
