Call the BBC library directly.

A few years ago (so admittedly before iplayer came in) I needed a programme and they obliging sent out a DVD for free from their library as long as I returned it.

no it says only available in uk.

notdoingthehousework - yes yes yes. do you have a dvd that you can tape on? I don't think my tape player works any more. I can send you money for expenses, postage, etc.

Join (it is only allowed to have a certain number of members at any one time, so you may have to keep trying for a few days until someone lapses or leaves). You can put a seed request up if it's not already there.

What date did it air? I've just had a bit of a skim and couldn't see it, but I'll have a closer look if you can tell me the date.

It is on uknova - I'm downloading it now and can send you a DVD. It's a .avi file so it should play in your DVD player but if not I can send you a link to download the thingumyjig to play it on your computer.

CAT me your address and I'll pop it in the post to you tomorrow.
