    Default Children's Film Foundation's DVD?

    While on holiday me & my girlfriend were talking about Children's Film Foundation films, & she wondered if any had been released on DVD.

    This link to Amazon (UK) lists some DVD's which may be of interest...

    Search of CFF at Amazon.co.uk


    I'm taking a look myself

    Thanks, I remember seeing some of those when shown on CBBC in the 1980s.

    Alas those three DVDs are pretty much it for CFF stuff available now (actually, I think even they are out of print, now) which is a real shame. I've been watching The Glitterball on YouTube this week which is great and an all too brief clip of Pop Pirates with Roger Daltery left me wanting to see the whole thing.

    It's a real shame that they're not being funded to make new stuff now. I don't expect today's kids to relate to a 1970s CFF film (although I think my 7 year old son would love The Glitterball) but there should be more stuff like that produced in Britian for British kids. At the moment it seems like once you're out of pre-school there's hardly anything for you other than US rubbish. We want our own rubbish!

    Even 30 years ago there was plenty of American produced children's TV.

    There certainly was but it was tempered with plenty of home-grown stuff for all age-groups. Now, it seems that once you're more than 5 there's pretty much only US fare.

    Hi,

    Just read you may have Sky Pirates on DVD. I have been looking for that for years. Would it be at all possible to get a copy please?

    All best

    I just went to youtube and typed in: Children's Film Foundation.I came up with this beauty,starring Peter Noone and somewhere,as usual: Keith Chegwin.



    It is a Children's Film Foundation Road Safety Film called: Betcha! It was made in 1971.
