Excellent 4-part 1996 BBC adaptation of Iain Bank's book, set in Glasgow and Argyll (with possible locations on Arran as well for some scenic sequences), available on dvd. Unusually the film version is much better than the book, because it sorts out the book's incoherent and tedious chopped-up chronology into a sensible sequence. The Crow Road is both a major route through NW Glasgow from the A82 to the Clyde Tunnel and a traditional family expression (according to the script) for where the soul goes after death - there may be some deep symbolism in this.

Good to see you getting in the swing of adding pics! :beer:

I think for DVD images they should be 720px wide.

Thanks. Am trying to do it as simply as possible - playing dvd in WMP and using Snipping Tool to capture, and uploading with "Automatic resize/recompress picture if needed" ticked. Is that a problem?

guess every snipping device has disadvantage to pause the movie, respectively to freeze the screen, as it takes screenshots only
while with VLC player you capture frame without detour beeing shown on screen first, making a litle insert upper corner only, and you can assigne tricker to capture frame to your favorite key.

The programme I'm watching at the moment has the exact same model of aircraft in it. :wow:

The big house used for a large number of sequences, including the various car park events in several entries is Ardkinglas House, on the shores of Loch Fyne, Argyll - "has featured in a number of films including The Crow Road, My Life So Far, The Rocket Post, The Waterhorse, Max Manus, This September, and Death in a Nut"; also in advertising campaigns by Boden, Pringle and New Look. http://www.ardkinglas.com/1/1/Home-/Ardkinglas-House-and-Estate.html , Link to "maps.google.co.uk" .
