Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die on DVD?

Postby Quatermass » Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:18 am

I want to know, just out of curiosity, is Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die available on DVD in any way, shape, or form?
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

Not that I can see, Q. I've had a nose round the Beeb's shop, and searching "pratchett" it came up with products for the nearest related word it could find........... "thatcher".

:lol:

To be honest, I can't see there being much call for it. It's makes for pretty depressing viewing at times.

Having said that, Living with Alzheimer's is available on DVD from Amazon (UK at least).

Not the sort of gift to give an elderly relative - they might think you are dropping hints. :?

I'm just a little PO'ed because I didn't manage to tape all of it (I missed the first few minutes as I was taping something else for my mother), and I'd prefer to have it on DVD if possible. And SBS doesn't look like it'll be repeating it anytime soon. Which is weird, as it seems to repeat all these foreign language films that few people will watch.

Q. According to the second to last comment, it's available on YouTube.

Well, I only missed the first few minutes (it picks up where Terry Pratchett is meeting the man with motor neurone disease, I think), and I generally don't watch full movies on YouTube. I'd just prefer to have a full version on DVD.

It's deffo not available on DVD at the moment.

Only thing I can suggest is that you ask nicely on here, and see if anyone still has it on their recording device, and are they able to copy it to DVD for you. ;)

Just watched the full thing actually. I'll discuss it in the relevant thread...
