Seeing that 1st class post has gotten so high, I lower the price down to $3.00 instead of charging 5.50 for 1st class, now all shipments will be sent by media mail, until the hot summer is back, than I'll go back to 1st class.
The series follows the daily intrigues of Sir Thomas Grey, a widower, and his sons and daughter. His children are Armus (the eldest), Richard (the serious son), Cedric (the free spirit), and his daughter Eleanor (the strong-willed one). There was also a son William who appeared in the pilot episode, but vanished afterwards. This was explained away by stating that he was called to head off and fight in the crusades. Also figuring into Sir Thomas's life is his love interest, Lady Elizabeth. The show takes its name from the name of Sir Thomas's castle, Covington Cross. While not entirely a sitcom nor an out and out drama, the show had a lighthearted feel to it. This was not by any means a terribly accurate portrayal of life in the Middle Ages, nor was it meant to be. The Greys each week would face a new dilemma that would test their honor and wits to overcome. Many of these dilemmas were concocted by Sir Thomas's evil neighbor, Baron John Mullens. Here is the short-lived medieval epic TV Series, COVINGTON CROSS, from the early 1990s, starring Nigel Terry, Glenn Quinn and Ione Skye.
ABC-TV only aired 7 of the 13 episodes; this set contains all 13 episodes, plus an hour-long interview press kit. This show was short-lived and most likely will never be released on DVD, so this is the only way you can find it. These episodes are as close to DVD quality as one can get for VHS recordings, (ALL EPISODES UNCUT). You couldn't find a better quality set anywhere as close to digital quality one can get for VHS recordings, all episodes are recorded at the 2-hour speed (SP) onto DVD, there is no compression loss, with unbelievable quality!
For the best quality only two episodes per DVD, making it a 7 disc set, all episodes were recorded at the SP speed (2 hr). All discs comes in plain paper sleeves, without labels or artwork, because they can cause the disc to play improperly, all of my discs are DVD-R discs in NTSC format region 0 (free) (USA), so please make sure, your player will play them.
All discs have interactive menus, making it easy to watch a certain episode.
When I dub my video recordings to DVD, I make sure it's the best possible playback, that includes if necessary, adjusting the tape guide roller to improve the tracking, after all these are my master recordings. First the recording is recorded to the DVD hard-drive at the XP (1-hour) speed, then the commercials are edited out perfectly, then record onto DVD at the flexible speed, thereby using the complete disc, unlike most seller who have to use a certain speed, Iï¿½ve never recorded anything at a certain speed, all recordings are recorded at the flexible speed. Unlike other sellers, if a master disc develops a bad spot, which has happen a few times to me, I can always make a new master, because I have the original recordings for all of my items for sale. I remember buying from a seller on a different site, and 1 disc had a bad spot, that seller sent me 2 replacements, each time the replacement sent had the exact same bad spot in the exact place, that seller didn't have the original recording to make a new one, something to think about when buying rare old TV recordings.
Don't be fooled, by other seller's, claiming theirs are uncut or that they have excellent quality, I've bought some series from other sellers, claiming very good quality, only to find out they had terrible quality, I couldn't believe they had the nerve to sell such poor quality. My prices are high, because they are rare, 1st generation recordings, not many people, had a VCR back in the late 70's. I bought my first VCR in 1979, costing me over $1200, that's 1979 dollars, that is why, all of my listings, are the original network broadcast and 1st generation. When the first MTS stereo VCR recorder came on the market in 1985, I bought one immediately, which is why my series are in stereo too, I doubt other sellers can say that, Like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Ask any and all questions up front, once you buy it, that's it. Copying is too easy, these days. I offer no refunds, but will happily replace any faulty disc.
Because the US post office raised their rates for international post on 1/27/2013, you'll need to email me for the charge, because it was an outrageous increase, almost by a 100% increase and the postal service continues to raise their int'l. rates every year about 10%, which now the postal service just raised there int'l. rates again during May 2015 by .22 cents for within the USA and .75 cents for int;l post, which is why I just raised the s/h charge by .25 cents to cover the cost of the increase. Also Paypal in May 2014 raised the fees on int'l. payments because of the increase in the currency rate exchange, so if there is a defective disc(s) (INTERNATIONAL BUYERS ONLY ON REPLACEMENT DISC(S) NEEDING TO BE REPLACE) you will also have to pay the shipping and Paypal fee charge for any replacement disc(s) that will need to be sent because just for the first level on the postage only for int'l post, the cost is more than $7.00 for the first 2 ounces sent on a package, which you can only send 2 disc at the first int'l. level, with DVDs being sent in a large envelope which is consider a package, that's because the envelope is rigid with the DVDs in them and a large envelope can not be rigid.
