I'm actually a bit excited right now.
Earlier today, I was transferring the contents of a few DVD-Rs to my external hard drive, on the sensible basis that It Saves A Lot Of Space. One of the things I was transferring was the old Tony Hawks programme One Hit Wonderland, based on his book of the same name
. Sadly, my copy of it, originally recorded by my mum back on its first and possibly, so far, only airing on The Discovery Channel back in summer 2002, is in a hopeless state - missing one of the seven episodes, and the ones that I've got are mostly incomplete in varying degrees. So, as I often do whenever I think about the programme, I did a search online to see if by any chance someone with a complete copy of it might have decided to upload it to Youtube or some other less than licit location; or even better, if it's being released on a legitimate commercial DVD.
No joy there.
But I did
find that, joy of joys, it's being repeated by this digisatcable channel
. Sadly, I've missed the first episode, and am just an hour in time for the second (3:30pm...can't come soon enough...), but suffice it to say I've set the Sky+ Box to record what's left of the whole series...and will then be digitising the whole lot asap.
Am very definitely a rabbit of positive euphoria!!!
(And if, by any chance, anyone out there can supply me with a complete copy of the first episode, I'll be an even happier bunny!!!)
