Fall of Eagles
« on: April 12, 2004, 09:03:17 PM »
This topic seems to deserve it's own  topic title.

I think several of us have the  "taped from home" vhs  series.  I wrote to BBC some time ago for permission to transfer my tapes to dvd.  Well, BBC is notorious for lack of response,  so I really can't  have this done until copyright permission is waived. At least legitamately.

As for the book:  Elisa, it is fairly easy to obtain from the websites-EBay, Bookfinders, etc. I have several copies. I give them away as gifts sometimes. Even one in miniarure for my doll's house !! [That I will NOT give away, however]
I have not checked lately, so I do not know what the going price is for the book.

Cheers,
Robert

I think most library's have copies, its a fairly popular choice because it covers three houses

P.S. to Fall of Eagles.
I finally DID recieve legal permission to transfer my tapes to dvd, Just weeks before it came out on commercial release, which I would rather have anyway.
Cheers,
Robert

You are most welcome. I fear though, that BBC may not repeat this programme on air, now that the dvd has been released. I was told that they have reclaimed US distribution rights. I do not know how true that is, however.
Glad you like the book. I think it is quite good as well. Sulzberger is an excellent author !

I got the DVD a few weeks ago - and watched the entire series this week while I recuperated at home with viral pneumonia. ... a fanastic series.  Will watch it again soon.

I wish the French would translate Frederic Mitterrand's magnificent six episode-series: Les Aigles Foudroyes and Memoires d'Exil...wuich are simply spell-binding!

Yeah, and get a narrator who wasn't a droner!

indeed...I have often times thought of translating the narration and playing the dvds at the Eurohistory Conference...that would be fun don't you think?

How about a book on tape/CD? I wish they came out with that for this one!

That would be interesting as well...both Mitterrand series were published in book form, I have copies of these, in French and had a wonderful time reading them.

But the idea of doing a voice over so we can watch them during the conference this mid-October sounds actually pretty good.
