Thanks John. As you and Paul both say, the film still exists at the BFI. There's to be an open-air screening of it in Warwickshire at the end of July., but I'm afraid that's no earthly use to me.

I note that it's being billed as a 'little known film, buried in the BBC and British Film Institute archives.' I don't think the BBC know anything about it -- I've been to them about it and I've concluded that if they ever had it on tape then they taped over it. So apparently the BFI is the only place where it now exists. And like you, I can find no commercial link to it anywhere, in DVD or any other format.

There is indeed a one-minute teaser for it (you couldn't call it a trailer) at the link.

If anyone knows where or how I could get a copy of either 'John Macnab' or the 'Hannay' series mentioned by Paul I'd be absolutely delighted to hear of it. :)
