The DVD of The War Games has arrived. I need to go into Oxford to have a working lunch, and catch up with other work. The day is therefore not going to be spent with what already looks like an excellent restoration which really brings out the sense of a videotaped studio drama and what could be achieved by very clever people with no money. The film sequences and soundtrack have been tidied up too. Generally it's good to see Mr Troughton and his colleagues performing in such sharp definition, having been brought up on film recordings.

Just about to start watching Episode Eight; it took a lot of willpower at 1.10 a.m. to save up the last four episodes until this evening.

Sorry to clog up your comments, but I realised I don't have an email address for you.

I was just wondering if you were still interested in the Tewkesbury Medieval Festival, this Sunday. It sounds like it will be a select group, gayalondiel, muuranker, ex-Memsec and me, and we'd love to have you join us if you are interested, but I understand if work has taken over all the time available.

Could you let me know - either here, or you can reach me at chairman at tolkiensociety.org (it gets so much spam anyway, I can't imagine leaving it here will make a difference.)

Thank you very much, and I'm glad you're enjoying the War Games....
