About 5 years ago I wrote a short article about missing television, Philips tapes, and 16mm film for my local parish newsletter. I had a few comments from neighbours down the shops, someone unloaded their old beta tapes on me, but otherwise nothing turned up. Anyway, one of my neighbours approached me yesterday saying they'd been meaning to get in touch with me about that article... took them half a decade, but I guess time flies when you're having fun!
Anyway, she tells me that she has a 16mm film of an episode of The Adventures of Parsley.
From a quick poke about it looks like this will be surplus to requirements.
She wants me to make an offer for it. Says it's roughly 5 minutes long, and not been projected in over 30 years so she makes no claims as to the condition of the print.
I'm half tempted to offer her a tenner and a bottle of red for it. But I really have no idea what would be fair, or if this would indeed be of any interest to anyone.
It would make a fun curiosity for my own collection if nothing else. But just asking in case there is something I'm not aware of in regards to this programme.

If this is the Filmfair series about Parsley the Lion, then it was a delightful little kid's show written by Michael Bond and a spin off from 'The Herbs' 1968. Originally in colour and would presume it still survives, but as always you might have an orphan episode that was not transmitted etc ?
