Default Anyone want some British videos?

I'm moving and downsizing houses. The majority of my 200+ VHS British video collection has to go, so I'm giving them away. Most of them are PAL format, so you'll need a universal VHS player. (There are a number of NTSC format tapes but mostly PAL)
I have a cross section of all kinds of things, from Stingray, Trumpton to the complete Blakes 7 collection and Jewel In The Crown boxset. From the original Upstairs Downstairs boxset to just about all of Only Fools And Horses episodes. Lots of films eg. Dambusters, The Italian Job, Billy Liar, Zulu etc etc. Sitcoms: Til Death Us Do Part, Citizen Smith, It Aint Alf Hot Mum etc etc Dramas, documentaries, sports, comedy - the works.

Not going to search for specific things but if you're interested in getting a mixture of stuff let me know by P/M. Tell me if you want a particular genre or selection of genres and how many tapes approx. I'll try and keep all collections/boxsets together initially.

These are all officially licenced releases and 99% are in their original cases with inserts.

Not looking to sell them just want shipping costs.

REMEMBER : These are VHS tapes mostly PAL (British/Australian format)

Can't guarantee perfect condition on everything but, hey, they're free!

If this post breaks any forum rules, I apologise - please remove.

Local library book sale? They often take movies and music, though to be honest many of them have stopped taking VHS tapes as few people have a player these days. (And you’d need to ensure the region is clearly marked to avoid ticked-off buyers!)

I'm in the same boat. Well, trailer actually. We're moving out tomorrow into our travel trailer. Have thrown a lot of crap away including a HP server with 20 300GB hard disks. Tried to Ebay them but no takers. They went in the trash yesterday. Such a waste.
