Re: Knightmare Possibly coming back to Challenge

As we've now entered an era where every British TV watcher is a potential Challenge watcher, the door is wide open for substantial viewing figures, perhaps even substantial enough to make a DVD release less unlikely than ever before. To elaborate on that, Challenge moved from being Sky/cable only t...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

Long time no post from me. Always puzzled me why the rights owners haven't ordered a take-down from YouTube (yet) but I'd like to think that assuming that they know about them, the decision not to do anything was one of pragmatism. After all: * It is unlikely they'll ever get repeated on TV again. *...

Knightmare stuff on ebay!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110636535857 OK, it's ended now but I was going to put in a cheeky bid if there wasn't much interest. Unfortunately for me, there was and the items went for rather a lot more than I thought they would...Anyone from the community own up to purchasi...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

Hi Aldarion I understand where you're coming from but I think that digital distribution/downloads/whatever you want to call them present an opportunity to get this fan project off the ground. When an official release of Knightmare was first being talked about, VHS was still the dominant video format...

Thanks to thejackal1975 for the game. I've really enjoyed it and somehow it evokes the spirit of Knightmare. Any chance of a se...

Challenge on Freeview!

Apparently Challenge is coming to Freeview sometime next year (actual date to be confirmed). Perhaps now would be a good time to lobby Challenge to get Knightmare back on TV? Someone has already mentioned it on a thread here - http://www.challenge.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?s=73e03f436d76d2d9b21cd0...

Re: What the future holds, perhaps?

Another big problem with YouTube is that the videos have a bad habit of disappearing. This can be through copyright claims, or as happened to me the other day, one of the users that I subscribed to closed their account, and along with that went all of their videos. Unfortunately a lot of them were r...

What the future holds, perhaps?

I've had a bit of spare time this weekend so decided to have a run through some of the old posts on here. There's some fascinating stuff, particularly on the technology side of things - VHS was still in use and DVD players were still a bit pricey - this was causing arguments as to which format a leg...

Re: grunderhunter???

Only six and a half years late! This wasn't Knightmare, it was Starstrider. It was a shown a few years prior to Knightmare but in the same slot on CITV and I'm glad that I'm not the only one who remembers, although it was 25 years ago... 8-o

Re: SOMETHING STIRS

Is that it then? Has 'Something' turned into nothing? :'( I guess so, that is for anything new and official on the Knightmare side of things. I read somewhere a while back that 99% of children's programmes shown in the UK are imported. Of the 1% that aren't, only the BBC are making/commissioning ne...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

The best move any single person can make would be to go and stick a fiver in to Google adwords. If 500 people click on the link, then 500 people know about it. If they all tell two people, then 1000 people know about it. Even if only 20% of them sign up and post their support, that's 200 more names...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

Nope, it was eight episodes for season one, ten for season eight, and all the others 16. Not to say that it wouldn't still be pricey, bit if this plan were to go ahead, season one would be the cheapest (and most wise!). Seasons 6 and 7 had 15 episodes I thought giving a total of 112. So based on th...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

Wow Mystara - thanks for the numbers, and I have to say that I'm rather shocked! Again, excuse my ignorance but surely a deal could be done given that it is a 15+ year old children's game show that will never see the light of day on a commercial basis again? I would have thought that some money is b...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

Ignoring DVDs for a second, how much money are we talking here to secure distribution rights to allow downloading of: - One episode? - A series? - The lot? Is the main cost paying off the actors that were involved? What other major costs are involved? Please excuse my ignorance here, I'm not too fam...

Re: Legal Knightmare DVDs

Hey Mystara - it's been around six months since the initial post regarding legit copies of Knightmare. I was just wondering if there was any update on your original post - so is there enough interest? When would there be a yes/no decision made? Cheers (and still supportive of both downloads and DVD/...
