[kj] Miks DVDs

Don't forget that Mik was provided with at least some of his collection for 
free by people like me, who simply welcomed the opportunity for the widest 
possible number of people to see what we had. So I don't think it would have 
been right for him to have made serious money out of it.

Personally, I would not have given up such material to anybody who I thought 
was going to make serious money out of it, but I didn't begrudge Mik the 
paltry round sum of £5 for the cost of the raw materials (don't forget 
things like cartridge ink), the postage and packing and the not 
inconsiderable time spent. He provided a service and a labour of love.

However, I would be rather pissed off now, if, for instance, something of 
which I once possessed the only copy in the world outside the BBC (i.e. Jaz 
on That's Life) now gets incorporated into somebody's money making project.
