Rob, re: the recording/edit dates - am I going mad but I could have sworn that I was around when you recorded the Ducks one on the concrete slabs outside Physics.. and I didn't start until Oct 97... Or have I completely made up that memory???! Cjw116 13:31, 9 May 2007 (BST)


The dates come from (beeb) tapelog, unfortunately I don't have a tape to hand to check the definitive reference on the timeclock before the opening titles. The best I can manage right now is a draft webpage I gave to Chris Parker in 1999. It says "there have been just 6 shows to date, originally shown in Term 2 of 1997..." followed by "Following the success of series one, two further special programmes ... will be broadcast later in 1998/1999". So series 1 was shown in Jan-Apr 1997, so series 2 might have been recorded Apr-Jul 1997. I recall grabbing the screen shots from a VCR lugged down to Hull road so that was Sep 1997 onwards, and Peter Bowles' lecture was cut short due to the smell of burning from Ducks wafting into the lecture theatre - that would make it Sep 1997 onwards too.

Compilation's source tape says 04/03/97 on the leader, haven't got to the others yet Richardash1981 19:52, 13 May 2007 (BST)

The leader clock for ducks says 19/06/1997 on it, so that's unhelpful Richardash1981 14:26, 2 July 2007 (BST)

Indeed - the credits list Matt Hammond as one of the two camera people, Helen Rix being the other. Tim Pollard took a year out in Germany in my 3rd year so that could place it as late as 1998-1999. Additionally the fire date is dubious at July 1997, it's filmed at Langwith so it's right in that respect, but the leader clock is 08/11/1998. This may just mean it didn't get edited until Autumn term. Sprow 10:31, 3 July 2007 (BST)
