Thanks Sarah. If I remember correctly Roobarbs is a site we've talked about before. I joined but needed permission to post. I think that was supposed to happen within a day or so but I'm still waiting some years on. If it's sold out it doesn't matter now anyway. I e-mailed Acorn but I wasn't reaĺly expecting a reply. My mother was a big fan of Midsomer Murders and had quite a few of the DVDs from Acorn. I think I'm right in saying that several of them had been reformatted to 14/9 so it's not impossible that they may have reformatted Crocodile Shoes too. I'd really like Jimmy Nail's Spender series too. To the best of my knowledge that was never released.
