Mike, thanks for the info of the screening at the Game Fair; I doubt whether I'll be going (we always used to, but on the Friday which was Country Landowners Association members' day and less crowded). I'll have a word with a couple of fellow Buchan enthusiasts when I see them next month to see whether they have any infor about copies of the film.
One of the problems with Tarboard is that participants often don't know whether those with whom we are corresponding live in the same county, the same country or on the other side of the world; however, this could be of use to you. If you are not UK based you could get in touch with the BFI and ask if it is possible to have a copy of Macnab made and sent to you - no idea about costs.
The other way to see Hannay is by way of the British Talking Pictures TV channel which, as I said, showed it last summer. This is a fascinating channel, family run, and which shows lots of old mainly British films as well as some excellent Children's Film Foundation films with some very young people who later became quite well-known stars. Go on their website and see. The channel has recently launched a free on-line viewing service called TPTV Encore - all you have to do is register. If you can then you should be able to get Hanny. wherever you are.
As with the BFI and Macnab it's worth a try.
I have no link with Talking Pictures except that I enjoy what they show.
Hope this might be of help.
