HEllo, my name is Simon, and I work for an independent TV company called Radar, and am looking for a London based Satelllite TV enthusiast with access to hundreds of TV channels worldwide to help out in a bit of research for our company. This person would be required to channel surf and fill a VHS tape with as many clips of weird and wonderful television shows from around the world as he/she can find. I want Mexican soap operas, Chinese chat shows, African entertainment shows, anything that you think would be of interest!
There will of course be a fee paid for this service.
If you or any of you would like to help out for a day's surfing, I'd love to hear from you.

Please feel free to call me on 020 7729 9642 10am - 6pm, or e-mail at simon.taylor@radartv.co.uk.

Thanks,

Simon.

Thanks for replying!
It can be anything really, good/bad/mad/weird or just plain stupid and pointless. I'm just looking for a broad range of 3-4 minute snippets of programmes/presenters/soap stars from around the world compiled onto a 3 hour VHS tape.
Not so much interested in archive material or erotica, or programmes from North America or Japan. Anywhere else in the world is a goer though. The more obscure the better.
If you (or anyone else out there)is interested in helping out please drop me an e-mail.

Happy viewing!

A 3 hour tape (in PAL) will be on its way in the next few days then.

Pity you dont want stuff from Japan, thay appear to have the weirdr feeds.

South America is quickly becoming the place to be for amateur TV production

That's his company's general email. Maybe Parky's cancelled the contract though.

No CH.......I'm the idiot. Parky is of course Michael Parkinson but I was thinking of Chris Tarrant's, Tarrant on TV. Your reputation is still in tact.

Banzai was one of those where you had to watch an hour of the stuff to get five minutes of brilliance

Sometimes worth it, but not often enough

Errrr No offence Simon
