Just spotted that the Snowdon ride, that was filmed for the Daredevils series, will be shown on Tuesday 10th February 2004 at 7:30pm. As far as I’m aware it will only be broadcast in the Carlton/Central ITV1 area. I will be recording it on SKY+ and I’ll probably transfer it to CD/DVD via an S/video cable to my PC, for personal viewing of course
If anyone saw Granada evening news a few weeks ago cos we were on that. We got a phone call after been seen in the paper then they sent a camera man and a reporter up a local fell with us and fillmed us doing loads of Muning. It was good they did it well. There’s only three of us in lancashire at themoment that we know of so contact us if there’s anymore of you out there. Prestonmuni@hotmail.com
I’m going to put it on a mini-DVD for personal use (all the benifits of DVD on cheap CDR) along with some of the photo’s posted in the gallery. Not all standalone DVD players can play them (mine does) but PC’s usually can.
I should be at the next unimeet so if anyone wants to you can PM me and I might be able to sort something out

I recorded it on DVD. About 8.5 minutes on unicycling. Split between
Will Stevens doing trials and the Snowdon group ride. Other activities
covered were Extreme Ironing and Sphering (Zorbing?).
I think the programme achieved its aim of making trials and mountain
unicyclists look like “Daredevils” but wasn’t so hot on attracting new
people to the sport. It made it all sound way too difficult - and dangerous.
Probably not as dangerous as Extreme Ironing, though.
I’ve got it on my PC ready to go on to DVD with a load of the photos from Snowdon. I’ve cut out all the chaff (adverts, ironing, zorbing etc.) so it’s just the important stuff and fortunately I didn’t feature much
Does anyone who is going to the Manchester unimeet have a portable DVD player/laptop they could bring with them? I’ll be bringing it/them with me and anyone there could view it.
No TV, we’ve got 6 in our house, not counting the TV card in my PC. I’m sure we can sort something out next time we meet up so you can see it if you want Mike. Oh and “The little ginger one”, that would be Gemma.
, i didn’t feature much either, well the back of my head did quite well:p i think it was quite good coverage in all, the bit about will was pretty good.
there seemed to be alot of upds shown, more than was necessary it think but there was some good riding in there as well so the sport definetely would have looked quite cool to the non-rider, which is a good thing.
unicus, i’m not sure if i’ll be going to the unimeet, but i should know by saturday so i’ll pm you then about stamping me a copy; much appreciated:D
