I think it's well known that the Radio Ballad films are available on YouTube.
There are also the four episodes of The Good Old Way (1983).
and Death of a Miner (1968)
The Other Music (1981) was mentioned on another thread a while ago, and doesn't appear to be currently available. I would also love to see this! Does anyone have a copy?
