    This is, I think, a 1960s short. Definitely B & W, and I think Bernard Miles played the title role. Beautifully photographed, I recall. Any information would be appreciated

    There has been an earlier request for this wonderful little film. It was shown on TV some 10 to 15 years ago, but hasn't been seen since to the best of my knowledge.

    It would be nice to see it as an extra on the DVD of Tawny Pipit, killing two birds with one stone (ouch!), but I don't think that that will ever happen.

    Never actually seen this film, but I can tell you that some scenes were filmed in Keith Fordyce's barn in Ley Hill, Chesham in November 1965!

    As far as I am aware, this has never been available commercially.



    In the 80's/90's, I was a prolific (vhs) recorder of tv, and I have recently been trawling through and archiving loads of those tapes to dvd and/or avi.



    I do have this. (avi is about 260Mb)

    John is there any chance of getting a copy of 'The Specialist' if you have it on avi as mentioned in your post of last year. Had a VHS of most of it from when it was last shown by the BBC. Have been looking for a full copy for some time. I think it is one of the best shorts ever produced. Cheers, Trennel.

    I'd very much like to see this, either as an AVI or a DVDR. Can anyone help please?
