Skallagrigg help!!!
13 May 2002 | by dave-hamiltonSee all my reviews

I work in special education and have been using this film as a teaching aid for many years. As well as a powerful and moving piece of drama, I like it because it chips away at the assumption that people in wheelchairs cannot be pro-active. My problem is that the copy I made from the tv transmission is about worn out. I've tried to buy a replacement but apparently Skallagrigg was never released to video. Can anybody help?
