Why oh why no DVD BBC?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heavy Weather [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Fans of P G Wodehouse will find this BBC production of "Heavy Weather" a delight. The casting is superb, as others have said, and the directing spot on, with timing and delivery of Wodehouse's inspired dialogues top-quality.
I cannot understand why the BBC never issued it on DVD, or why they in 2013 are now screening a rather inferior version in "Blandings", to the disappointment of Wodehouse fans nationwide, judging by the blogs in the online media. Some episodes are quite good, but there is a tendency to overacting, and "caricature" acting, wholly absent in this earlier production.
I feel slightly guilty at having snaffled the last one available in Amazon marketplace a year ago, after I'd dusted off an partial VHS home recording of the original showing that I'd caught at the time.
Now it is safely copied to my DVR hard drive, I feel honour bound to make it available to everyone else via YouTube. But this will be a test of techie skills. First burn the DVD off the DVR, then copy it to the PC, then convert its format to avi Windows format, then edit it into 10 minute chunks, then find out how to get them to YouTube.
