A month or so ago I popped along to one of the 'Vintage Tackle Fairs' in Romsey, Hampshire. They have two shows a year, and I have over the years, picked up some good trinkets here and there.

Last time, I stumbled over a video tucked away on a bookcase called 'Anglers Corner' - it aroused a certain degree of curiousity with me and I parted with a fiver to explore further.

On returning home I put it in the video recorder expecting it be all 'grainy' and exhibiting dropouts on the audio but was greatly suprised with how it had survived! The video was issued in the mid 1980's and presents four 15 minute programmes produced by Bernard Veneables (who presents it) and film maker Maxwell Munden. The programmes were made for BBC2 in 1968 and the four on the tape are called Bream, Tench, Roach and Chub.

It is a simply wonderfull thing, to see the styles, tackle and baits of the 1960s (in colour too) I was for an hour, in a timewarp. To see Bernard Venables trotting for Roach on the Kennet whilst smoking his pipe was a joy.

My question - has anyone else seen these shows, or can some of our more 'mature' members remember the original series?? I would be most interested to hear your thoughts and recollections as there seems to be little information about the series or the maker, Max Munden.

Best Regards.

Well I would just love to see that!! I am old enough to have seen the original showing on the BBC but I was away on HM duties in the Persian Gulf catching 100llb Groupers and such like.
Goosequill if you would be kind enough to copy the tape I would be very grateful, obviously I would refund all costs. In fact I reckon you could 'bbotleg' a few copies.

Put 'Anglers corner' into E-bay and you'll find someone who is selling DVD's of both the coarse and game series for about 3:00 . The seller says he has the rights to sell the DVD and has good feedback ( supposedly ). After what has been said on here i'm very tempted.

edit: Here's a link

Hi, I've been looking for these films for a long time and have yet to stumble across a copy or find the dvd transfers anywhere.
Could anyone kindly make a DVD copy or post to youtube? I'd happily pay for a copy.

Regards

I remember them well, and enjoyed watching them many years ago. They've come down in price now as they used to fetch a lot more on the collector's market.
