Ripping Yarns DVDs by sminobe on 14 January 2004 6:36pm

Stolen from the "Series" side:

Re: Ripping Yarns...help!! by Webmaster on 14 January 2004

Good news from Michael's office: all 9 Ripping Yarns are going to be issued on a DVD by a company called Network Media, towards the end of this year or early next year. Network are currently working on enhancing/ restoring the quality of the original film material, and Michael and Terry Jones have recorded a commentary.

..swell...but can we get one that is compatible with our US dvd players??? we tend to feel so left out at times..

I'm sorry to inform you that this Network Media in Northern Ireland isn't the same company you refer to. We do make TV programmes and when I worked for the BBC I did a spell as Asst Producer on Michael's Great Railway Journeys of the World II
(Derry to Kerry). I've taken a couple of enquiries already so maybe the other "Network Media" can help.

Man, I hope they release it over here in the US... it would be a major crime against humanity if they didn't.

We'd have to arrest Palin.
And Jones.
Yeah, and make them do comedy shows for us!

To fellow US viewers -- consider getting an all-region DVD player so you can play everything from everywhere. I got my first one at Scarecrow Video in Seattle (206.524.8554); I bought another on ebay for just $75.

somewhat related question: has anyone tried playing different region-ed DVDs in a DVD-ROM? Do they work? Or do you have to tinker with settings to get them to play?

Mara, try this site for info:

yeah that site is good, and it helped, thanks! But has anyone actually *tried* it? :) (trying not to beat a dead horse though)

Yes, NQE....I'll lead the arresting party...I'm with you! I've got a great extra room in my house to stow them in too....Not for my OWN personal benefit, mind you, just trying to be helpful!

As far as the DVDs go, I just bought a Region 1 of Sahara released in China, so it works on my player and it's in English (though I can watch it with Mandarin subtitles if I so desire)

I love it!
