Our Compilations are aimed at the enthusiast who does not want to miss anything. They may be 18 or 180 minutes long, but they are not edited to length just to make an entertaining show. We leave in as much relevant material as possible after taking out repeats, bad takes and irrelevant setting-up footage, and present it in a logical order.

What remains is as complete a record of an event or process as possible, too comprehensive and intense for a general audience, but ideal for the dedicated specialist or researcher. A few compilations are 'enhanced' by the addition of some commentary and/or graphics.

Compilations have been grouped together into Subject headings and are listed below.
