List of Volunteers
Tape Tree lists

INSTRUCTIONS: If you find something on this list that you would like to see, Choose one of the volunteers off the list appearing at the end of this message and send them a private e-mail including:
1: What videos you are interested in obtaining copies of.
2. The speed at which you would like them recorded (2 hours per tape or SP, 6 hours per tape or EP for North America)
3. your e-mail address

The volunteer will reply to your message with further instructions.

NOTE: Some of these videos may be unsuitable for younger viewers, please consider this when you make your request and choose your viewing options wisely. The volunteers reserve the right to refuse to make copies.

A note about quality and formats: While most of the programs described are good quality and make good copies, some of them are of lesser quality and appear to be grainy to some degree or another. This is partially due to them being copies of copies. Particularly affected are the programs that have had to be converted from the PALS format used in some parts of the world. The American video standard (NTSC) is inferior (less lines of resloution) to the European standard (PALS) and so we lose a little extra resolution when we have to have the tapes converted between standard formats. We are in the process of upgrading the quality of existing copies of some of these items. This will take some time.

This is a list of people who have volunteered to dub tapes for others. Please remember that these people are VOLUNTEERS and at times real life concerns may interfere with their ability to provide this service, there are only so many hours in the day. Please be willing to be patient with us as we will get behind from time to time. Reimbursement of some sort is expected but will not exceed the cost of the blank tapes and postage or replacement of the blank tapes.

The list of volunteers contains people who can dub all the items on the list and those who only have episodes of H:tLJ available to dub. If you only want episodes of Hercules please ask one of the volunteers who only have these available first so the other volunteers will be free to dub the other Michael videos.

If any one volunteer gets more requests than they can handle the other volunteers will take up the extra, so do not be surprised if you request from one volunteer and hear back from another. Also, if the volunteer you have chosen doesn't have a particular video, your request will be referred to a volunteer to does and they will contact you about it.

If you live outside North America, there is also a list of volunteers in other parts of the world available to dub things. Please check to see if there is one in your part of the globe and send them a private message inquiring about what they have to offer.
