Default Story tapes, CDs and Video Tapes

I want to clear out some spare video tapes, story tapes and CDs without them ending up in landfill so I thought I would offer them on the Forum first.
All the stories were my mothers who is now too blind to use them, (I have set her up with an Amazon Echo which is working well for her.)
First come first served if you want to pick them up they can be collected from Bristol BS9, Solihull B93 or Carbis Bay during W/C 31st Oct, if collected I would like a small donation to RNIB.
I will charge £8.00 for each lot to include postage and packing £10 for 2 lots if there is any change from that it will go to RNIB.


1. Assorted VHS video tapes in one lot as follows
A. Box of 3 Mont Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian and The Meaning of Life.
B. The Fortunes and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders staring Alex Kington made by Granada.
C. 2010 The Year We Made Contact based on novel by Arthur C Clarke.
D. Purley Belter a British Comedy
E. There’s something about Mary.

2. Audio Cassette Story Tapes
A. Vintage Archers Vol 1,2,3
B. The Silent World of Nicholas Quinn by Colin Dexter
C. The Last Bus to Woodstock by Colin Dexter
D. The Sculptress by Minette Walters
E. The Scold’s Bridle by Minette Walters
F. The Cracker by Agatha Christie
G. Miss Marple’s Final Cases by Agatha Christie
H. The Trials of Rumpole by John Mortimer
I. Requests for Pleasure by Joyce Grenfell
J. The Beach House by James Patterson and Peter De Jonge
K. And any others that turn up!

3. CD Stories By C J Sansom.
A. Abridged Dissolution, Dark Fire, Sovereign, Revelation read by Anthony Lester
B. Unabridged Lamentation read By Steven Crossley
C. BBC - Dark Fire
D. BBC – Revelation
E. BBC - Heartstone
F. Talking Classics Lorna Doone

I would be more than happy to pay £15 for F G and H as a digital copy, (I can't think of a better cause than the RNIB, I love my radio as a sighted person, without that it would be radio, radio, radio) I don't have a cassette player. An online cloud "Dropbox" thing will be splendid, postage for a USB stick too if necessary.

Just for clarity this sale is for 3 lots as the aim is to clear as much as possible.

ION do a hifi separate called tape2pc, there's plenty on ebay and can be bought cheaply and sold on again for what you bought it for... its basically a tape deck with a USB connection and allows you to record your tapes as mp3's.

i had one a few months ago, bought local to me for £10 and i sold it on ebay for £20, and it did a good job... might be a way to do it

PM sent, tapes are not for me, still would like a digital copy of F, G and H, perhaps the new owner could do this for me, donation to RNIB as the "fee"?

Whenever I've digitised tapes it's been a very big job. Levels, labelling, and the time at 1:1 transfer, which would probably be a couple of days for three double story tapes! If you don't listen to the whole thing as it's being transferred you're never sure no dodgy bits have crept in...

I’m out of room for videos really but I’d like the Monty Python ones. Be a shame to see them dumped.

Regards
