I VHS record all that I want to view from TV programmes. Watch at a suitable time to me!
I can fast fwd the adverts.
Do have DVD's of much loved, usually, UK BBC cop drama's. They're simply THE best!
Oooohhhh! Prime Suspect, Midsomer Murders, Waking The Dead, Blue Murder, No Offence, DCI Banks, miss Marple Mysteries, Poirot et al.
Love 'em to bits!
