Black Watch on Radio 3 on 10 Jun - 90 minutes long

Discussion in 'Films, Music and All Things Artsy' started by Stonker, Jun 2, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Described as an 'unofficial history of the Black Watch' this play is based on recent interviews conducted by Gregory Burke with former soldiers who served in Iraq, this played at the '06 Edinburgh Fringe, to packed houses and excellent reviews, and then went on tour.

    Sounds like it should be good listenin'.

  4. I will try to remember to record it in MP3 and post it in chunks for download.

  5. Thanks, Stonker - much appreciated. I've been keen to see / hear the play since I first heard about it. Didn't realise you could record from the radio either.

    One small quibble, though. I was able to download the smallest of the .mp3 chunks. However the website refused access to the remaining two as they were too large - any chance you could break them down further?

    "Cheers, big mon"

  6. Sorry. Check back tomorrow night.

    D'you want the recording software? It's a freebie.
     
  7. Anybody disappointed at their first attempt to download Black Watch in MP3 format, try again.

    I have chopped it into smaller files, and updated the link.

    Hopefully all's well now. Do shout if it ain't.
