I have been in communication with CBC Vancouver regarding sale of video tapes and the rebroadcast of the Gung Haggis Fat Choy tv performance special!
CBC Archives Librarian Colin Preston tells me that no videos will be for sale due to the nature of release forms for all the artists involved, the producer, etc etc… 🙁
So… try to find somebody who did tape it, or come to my house for a viewing party. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
This said, the next thing to do is ask the CBC regional director if and when the special will be rebroadcast. Here is Director Rae Hull's answer:
As to the requests for video, can you continue to forward any feedback to us so that as we move to try for a bigger special next year we can use it to help build the case for a network broadcast. We'd also like to keep track of the names so we can notify them next year. I don't think we'll be rebroadcasting this special locally before then, as I'd like to keep the momentum moving toward next year.
So… keep those comments coming in, and I will forward them to CBC. As well, contact CBC and ask for a rebroadcast. Remember the Director said, “I don't think we'll be rebroadcasting this special before then.” So there is a chance, and St. Patrick's Day is probably the most appropriate time for the forseeable future.
