Sarah Waters named one of the Best of Young British Novelists 2003, an award announced only once every decade.
I really enjoyed Tipping the Velvet and would love to see the BBC production of it. I would buy the DVD but it only seems to be available from UK sites (Amazon, BlackStar, etc.) and is encoded for region 2. My DVD player only plays region 1 encoded discs. I’m told the DVD player in my computer might play region 2 discs, if I download and install software that switches the abilities of my DVD player. But, it’s unclear if I can then switch the DVD player back afterwards. Harummpphh.
I loved ‘Tipping the Velvet’ and can see why Waters was nominated, but her book ‘Affinity’ was truly awful. <br>I’d love to see TTV in a play or movie form.
Why is Sarah Waters now bald headed?
We ‘hacked’ our dvd player (region-free/macrovision-free) by simply loading new firmware via cd-r. You can check whether yours is hackable here: http://www.vcdhelp.com/dvdhacks<br><br>BUT – I take no responsibility 🙂
i bought some DVDs over from the UK with me…they work in my PC DVD player, no probs…..
and to finish that thought…if u wanna try some region 1 DVDs before u screw up your PC….lemme know…..
oh shit. i am SO tired…i meant region 2…but u knew that didnt u?
Not sure about PCs but on a Mac you can switch regions 5 times, but that’s it. <br><br>FYI: I posted those letters tonight if you are still interested 🙂 Cheers
Loooooooved "Tipping."<br>Loved it.<br>Read it twice.
There’s a MOVIE ????? Damn I need a clue.
Did you check the BBC America site to see if the DVD was available there? They do have DVDs on that site, but I don’t know if they have the one you want (I just ordered the first season of "Coupling" on DVD for a friend of mine…)<br><br>http://www.bbcamerica.com/
Never mind. I just went there and did a search, with no success… Sorry.
