[REL] The Famous Five (TV Series) (1978)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078611/

Plenty of crappy quality VHS rips around. Although incomplete, I've chosen the German supposed DVD rips which are definitely better. All have dual German/English audio.
Prepare yourself for no authenticity (in fact it's set in the 70's), jeans, dungarees, flared trousers, soppy unisex hairstyles, BMX bikes, cars straight off 'The Sweeney' film set & probably the worst theme music ever heard! Despite all of this it's a bit of children's TV heritage & should be watched.
Complications arise with my zero understanding of the German language & episode numbering that doesn't correspond with that listed on IMDB or below. I don't like renaming files so I'll release individually with English title explanations.
At present this series is incomplete although I'm searching!

Yee! Haw! Great find! :D

Uh-oh! Got to get me a bigger HDD. :(

Queued up for later.

btw. if there is a set of DVDs to be had (implied by the 'DVD-Rip' in the titles) a link to that would be nice as well. Might be easier to get than 8 1/2 CDs. :P

I now have this series complete (all 26 episodes) so it's time to tidy up the thread & replace the expired screenshots. Although I've not checked every single file hash I'm guessing the duplicate episodes will be identical to those originally posted. These files have already been renamed several times & are messy & inconsistent so for simplicity I'm doing it again but omitting the Season details as there is confusion as to whether there were two or three. The release order is as the generally accepted transmission date & as listed at IMDB here.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0078611/episodes
These are all dual German/English audio & supposedly DVD rips although I have my doubts. The unknown original ripper has been swallowed up by the anonymity of the internet over the years but still deserves thanks.
The complete release amounts to nearly 9gb so I will unshare everything else on the loverboy2 eMule account at work, leaving it exclusively for these.

Oh..........I was responding to ptg's comments but he must have edited his post or the Gestapo have been at it again! :icon_biggrin2
Anyway.......ptg made a very valid remark about episode numbering for identification purposes. In my enthusiasm to create a simpler & less confusing set of file names I overlooked the fact people may want easy identification of the files in chronological/transmission date order. I've edited the release, simply adding episode numbering from 01 to 26.

Are they wearing jeans/trousers in all of these ? Any Debaser-style episodes ?

Thanks

plonkah......it's all a bit naff unisex/dungarees/long hair/bmx bike sort of stuff with if I remember only one swimming costume scene. Not really db-style but a great slice of 1970's British children's TV.

kj........I've uploaded 100gb of these already so they should be well sourced. I've unshared them at the moment to concentrate on ptg's six-episode stunner but I'll reshare them all again in a couple of days. Let me know if you get stuck.
