Coronavirus Update

A message from my family to yours.

As a small family owned and run business we share everyones concerns during these uncertain times.

We have been taking all steps to follow guidelines. With the recent easing of lock down we are now back to full staffing levels. However, social distancing guidelines and other precautions do mean we are not working at full capacity. 

The last few weeks have been extremely busy and we appreciate every order we have had from our customers. Thank you for trusting us with your memories, especially during these uncertain times.

We are working to get orders that we have In hand back to our customers in a timely fashion. But our service time has extended considerably due to the volume of orders.

Our aim is to keep all orders safe and to convert and preserve them with the utmost care.

Royal Mail are working hard to get orders to us and back to you. They too are very busy and some deliveries are taking longer than expected.

If you wish to order, now perhaps being the time you might be tidying and sorting and finding your memories, please do, keeping in mind our extended service time.(shown on our home page and at the top of our ordering page)

Above all please keep yourselves and your loved ones safe.

8 Great Book to Film Adaptations

Film adaptations of books often get a bad reputation, but usually for good reason. There are some truly awful book-to-film adaptations out there, and they will no doubt continue to be made. Either because the director didn’t read the source material or the book just doesn’t have the right kind of plot to translate to the big screen, bad film versions of books are plentiful.

Where to Sell VHS Tapes

If you’ve got some old VHS tapes lying around of films and TV shows that you now enjoy on DVD or from streaming services, you might be wondering what you can do with the tapes. VHS tapes are notoriously difficult to recycle, due to their plastic content and the chemicals used on the tape itself. So you might be hoping that you can sell those VHS tapes and make a bit of money.

Could the VHS Have a Comeback?

In 2006, the last film by a major studio to be released on VHS was The History of Violence. Since then, the VHS has only had limited new releases, often in the form of marketing gimmicks. After all, nobody uses VHS tapes to watch films anymore now that DVDs and Blu-ray exist, right?

Most Anticipated Films of 2020

2019 certainly was a fantastic year for films. We had such highlights as Avengers Endgame, Toy Story 4, Booksmart and Us, and we can’t wait to see what the year 2020 has it store for us.

To get ready for the no-doubt incredible year of films ahead, here’s a look at some of the films we already know are on the horizon for the new year that we just can’t wait for.

Christmas Films to Watch in 2019

Christmas is just around the corner, where on earth has the year gone? Soon it’ll be time to sit by the fire, hang those Christmas stockings and settle down with a mug of hot chocolate to watch some classic Christmas films.

But hang on, rather than watch the same Christmas films you’ve seen year in year out, why not add some brand-new Christmas films to your list this year? 2019 has a wonderful looking line-up of festive films being released just in time for the holidays. And while The Grinch and Miracle on 34th Street will always hold a special place in your heart, why not have a look and see if any of these new films could make your all-time top ten?

Can You Recycle VHS Tapes?

As people become more eco-conscious and serious about disposing of their things in an environmentally friendly manner, you might be wondering what to do with your old VHS tapes.

While you may be able to sell some classic VHS copies of films on eBay, it’s unlikely you’re going to be able to shift those home VHS tapes of family moments once you’ve backed them up with a video to DVD conversion.
