Poster boys

Well, there you go. Not sure how and to whom this poster is supposed to be circulated to, so I thought I'd plonk it here. It did occur to me that the full-on skele picture below might not be everyone's cup of tea.

Who ever these guys were, they were brutally killed, but now we'll get to find out what may have happened to them, and they will be remembered.

That poster reminds me of some slasher horror movie aka Scream, only without the stupid blondes who always run into the cellar. :)

Since I can't watch it (I get British channels, but History Channel isn't free), keep us informed, please.

It's on BBC2, not the History Channel, if that helps. There is a little clip of it on the website (see my previous blog) and also an article. Added to that, the Times article, which I linked a while back gives the gem on the way the programme will go. Of course you'll be missing the doubtless dodgy re-enactment bits and the truly exciting digging clips ;-)

We will be videoing it, and I might be persuaded to send you a copy. We've currently got a combined video and DVD recorder. We have PAL video over here (rather than NSTC) but I don't know about anything about international DVD formats. Do you? Sending a DVD would be cheaper, and less likely to damage.

I don't have a video player but I can run DVDs on my laptop. But I'd better ask my brother about compatibility.

I'll have a lookout for BBC2 though I'm not sure. I can get the BBC news channel via satellite. But the English and Scandinavian programs are badly represented compared to the two dozen Spanish, French and Italian channels I can get. Or that Polish one that sends religious stuff 24/7. And AlJazeera. :-)

If you haven't already seen it, Tony Keen has some comments on the classical history in the programme here

Gabriele, One of the DVD-RW I've got also has instructions in German, so I am presuming that it's compatible! But it may be like CDs which work better as CD-R if sending to a different machine. Anyhow, let's take this off the blog. Drop me a line to if you wish
