    OK, my VIDEOS are taken (Michael Moloney was inundated and has enough, but Charlie has accepted mine) – so no more phone call offers please.

    Many Thanks

        I have a lot of foreign films on videotape. I got then when a Blockbuster store near me closed several years ago. Are you still interested? If so, are they for personal use or do you try to sell them? Thanks.

      Can I request that those who wish to dispose of their Video tapes etc
      to give a rough location of where thry live
      Here in Bristol I visted a old video tape film store in Christmas steps in Central Bristol.
      I asked him if he was after thing special,he said no.
      Having said that I am after Pride and the passion Frank Sinatra Cary Grant and sophia Loren also
      There was a crooked man Norman wisdom film from 1960,NOT the 1970 film of the same name.
      on Video or DVD pre-recorded or taped off telly
      Also any football league action (MOTD or Big Match) taped off the telly older the better
      FinallyI know we all want video tapes to be used for the purpose intended,but even I have to concede that video should be disposed in the rigid plastic recycling facilities if your local council does recycle video tapes.

    I have found that the vcr tapes work great in the garden to tie up vines and especially tomatoes as they stretch and will not cut the vine. I use them every summer without the worry of having to save them as I have oodles.
