Frasier – Mr Vampire – tape 2410

Straight into an episode of Frasier. It’s Guess Who’s Coming to Breakfast. And it gets cut off just before the credits end, going to a Prince music video. Looks like a long thing as it even has credits.

Then, it’s Mr Vampire, a Chinese martial arts ghost story. I have to confess, I didn’t warm to this. I’ve never been a huge fan of Kung Fu movies or martial arts in general, and I found this kind of film a bit tiresome. The fight scenes are well done, though.

After this, recording switches again, to get the end of some American Football, with music from the Nutcracker playing, which is nice.

Then, another in the Chinese Ghost Stories season, Zu Warriors from the Magic Mountain. Strangely, the tape runs out before the film ends – I clearly was hoping there was enough time left on the tape, and miscalculated.

  1. I’ll take a pop at this – The Beautiful Experience (Prince)/Mr Vampire – 25/12/1994, late night.
    Zu Warriors – 26/12/1994.

    1. I’m sure you’re right. Do you have a source of listings for the commercial channels? BBC Genome is wonderful for BBC programmes, but ITV, C4 and Sky don’t have anything similar.

      1. Times Digital Archive and the Guardian/Observer archive. Times has the better search function, Guardian has (IMO) the better write-ups, but use both.
