Cameraman in Basic?

This is one for those of you who have gone through basic recently, prefferably at Pirbright.

I remember 3 years ago we had a cameraman tagging along on some ex's and certain events like the CO's comp and drill comps etc. and then sold us all a DVD at the end of it for £20.

Do you know if they still do this? Im planning on putting together a DVD for the family with a slideshow when i passoff and it be great if i could rip the video footage from the DVD he sells if they still do it.

Not sure if its new or what but its a rip off come Pass Off day. There meant to film all of your basic training but the only thing on our dvd at the end was parents day, 1 pass off rehearsal and the actual pass off parade. The footage of Bayonet training and hours of fire pairs manovoure in full CBRN kit were mysteriously lost...
