One by one, my vids are being blocked on YouTube by BBC

It will take them a while, but every day another video is blocked.  Latest was the Avon memorial Auld Lang Syne.  The one that surprised me was that they blocked an academic lecture by Edi Bjorklund from 1987 that compared B7 with ST.  If anything was fair use, I would have thought that was.

But, as the vids go away from YouTube, I'm making sure that the 69 music videos are still up to stream and download from my site.  So bookmark

and you should still have access to the videos.  All my best and love to fellow Blakes 7 fans.

I've got all my Blakes 7 music videos up on my personal website for streaming and downloads

The advantage of having them up myself is that the quality is better, they include videos not up on YouTube, and you can download them.  The disadvantage is that I can't handle the traffic that YouTube can if everyone wanted to watch at once.  Luckily, you guys scatter views pretty well.  Let me know if I've screwed anything up.

Two more pages of videos newly up:

Henry Livingston, the author of "Night Before Christmas" - interviews, poetry and prose - late 18th century

Audio adventures - Crossfire question and a CD to give away for free

Hi. I've just come back to the B7 fandom after many years away and have recently got into the audio adventures, mainly from Big Finish. Anyway, I have a question that I hope it's okay to ask here - mainly, is 'Crossfire Part 3' the end of that story, or will there be another part? I don't like starting things that end on a cliffhanger/are unresolved.

Also, I recently got hold of 'The Early Years: When Vila Met Gan' in CD form. I'd like to pass this onto a fan for free (even pay the postage). I'm based in the UK, so someone from there would be great, but I am willing to post abroad too. Don't leave me an address in the comments as they are NOT screened, we can PM/email later. Probably best to do first come, first served.

Thanks for reading.

A Gareth Thomas Memorial Video up on YouTube

A Gareth Thomas Memorial Video up on YouTube - He's sorely missed. A hole that can't be filled. The video was made last year but got rejected from YouTube for some unknown reason. We only got it up last night.

Auld Lang Syne - Susan Boyle

And remembering the real Gareth Thomas, and his message to Paul Darrow, May 1987


Three of my Kindle books are still up for free for at least today. They're all about Henry Livingston, the actual author of "Night Before Christmas." We came out with the statistical proof in 2016 that Henry Livingston wrote the poem and not Clement Moore.

*****FREE*****FOR CHRISTMAS*****
Henry Livingston, The Poet You Always Loved

Thrice Happy Poetry - 14 poems of love and women by Henry Livingston, comic book style, illustrated with 174 antique postcards - my favorite

The Night Before Christmas - by Henry Livingston, NOT Clement Moore - the original 1823 version of the poem with 89 illustrations from 21 different vintage editions - great review called this a Veritable Treasure

Hopes that you have the best year ever in 2018. Mary
