    First off, I hope you all had an extremely enjoyable Christmas!



    Okay then, I'm after a copy of the above BBC series if possible. I believe only 15 episodes were made so I'm hoping somebody might have recorded and them stashed away somewhere.



    Again, thanks in advance for any help you can give me!



    Regards

    if you have Sky Digital you will be able to see Harbour Lights on the LIFE ONE channel which is on EPG 197 and the series has been looped for around 2 months now. it's shown at 9pm most nights

    Hi, thanks, yes it's seeing this that reminded my wife that she wanted to have a copy of the whole series for posterity! Trouble is, we don't get very good reception on that particular channel so recording from it would be pointless.

    Harbour Lights was an okay series, it is ironic they make then cancel stuff like this, but continue to make some total rubbish reality drivel.D

    There were actually 16 episodes made and most episode guides seem to miss the 2nd episode off them, which is entitled "Marie Celeste". I'm recording them onto DVD-RW and will be encoding them with full menus onto DVD+R in the correct series running order once I've got the full collection, so if you still want a set, just let me know. The full series will be on 8 DVDs with 2 Episodes on each disc. the sound and pic quality is very good too.

    Can anyone fathom the reasoning behind Life One's scheduling pattern? They seem to repeat Harbour Lights episodes at random occasionally slipping in a new one. They are also doing the same thing with Dr Finlay. How can they expect to establish a regular viewing audience when it appears to be impossible to follow a series?

    The Thursday night episodes of HL & DF seem to be the new ones.

    I don't think so. If that was the case, why would the channel as a whole be unwatchable?
