O Lucky Man! arrived in the post this morning, and looks great. Thank you!

I have a favour to ask of LJ friends...

One of my long-standing filmic gripes is that so few of Lindsay Anderson's films are available. Britannia Hospital is available on DVD, as is This Sporting Life. Neither If.... nor O Lucky Man! are available on DVD; both have been on video, but even those are now out of print.

It turns out that Sky are running a 'Not Available In The Shops' season on Sky Cinema 1, and that they're showing O Lucky Man! at 10pm on Thursday 30th November. Would one of you lovely, lovely people on LJ with satellite TV be able to record it for me in exchange for a redeemable favour? The film's three hours long, so you should just be able to fit it on an E-180 tape (alternatively, if you're able to burn it to a DVD, that would be preferable to video tape).

From the discussion following [livejournal.com profile] swisstone's poll, I have learned the following:

  • Britannia Hospital is now available on DVD
  • The soundtrack for O Lucky Man! is available on CD
  • The Missa Luba (a mass sung in pure congolese style), sung by the Troubadours of King Baudouin and directed by Father Guido Haazen, has been reissued by Decca/Phillips (admittedly without the congolese folk songs on the A-side)
  • Channel 4 have put many of the short films they've funded on their website, including the William Gibson adaptation Tomorrow Calling (with Toyah Wilcox and Don Henderson)

Fortunately, only three out of these four cost money.
