    Could anyone tell me if it is possible to find/buy a video tape or DVD-based version of the 1989 BBC TV film "Tumbledown" with Colin Firth? It was a remarkable piece, which had a great personal impact on me, and I am extremely keen to try to find it on tape or DVD. Despite the controversy it generated when first released, it is now rarely shown, if ever, in either Britain or the United States. Many thanks in advance! S.L. Andreani-Pandeff (New York City)

    I don't think TUMBLEDOWN has been issued commercially. If you are still looking for this TV drama, I have a recording of it.

    I wonder if anybody could help, I've been contacted by Lieutenant Robert Lawrence (Firth's character) and he'd like a copy of the film as he doesn't possess one. If you can help, drop me a PM and I'll forward his email.

    I would dearly love to see BBC's 1989 film, "Tumbledown" about Robert Lawrence. I never seem to be able to obtain a copy from anywhere. If you can help me in this search I would be eternally grateful.

    I've been trying to find this film for years, my parents were friend of The Corries, who did all the music, and i am a big fan of the music myself. i also went to Mount Tumbledown a couple of years back and played The Garten Mothers Lullaby on my MP3 player, while having a quiet moment. this if i remember rightly was one of the songs used on the film. it was rather moving to me. i have a big interest in the falklands conflict, etc, and after being there myself with the RAF, i had a chance to see some of the places first hand.



    i would be so greatfull if someone could make a dvd copy of this film for me, or steer me in the right direction to get one for myself.



    Please PM me if you can help

    Thanks,

    Keith

    I would love to introduce myself in the Introductions forum, if only I could find it!



    Since I can't seem to find it, I am Michele from NYC, a great lover of British films, and a particular fan of Colin Firth, star of Tumbledown.



    And here's some good news!
