Interesting to finally see that Surf Champ controller in action, I've read about it and been wondering how it works. A bit disappointing to say the least.

Great production as always, keep up the good work Paul!

Thanks @PaulJ

Excellent as always. Any plans to place more series onto BluRay or DVD?

Enjoyable as ever, @PaulJ.

It occurs to me... Do you have an easily consumable/machine-parsable list of the games mentioned in each episode? Transcripts, maybe? Spectrum Show references might make a useful addition to ZXDB.

It would be useful @dfzx to do the same with the excellent magazines that @PaulJ produces. Any volunteers?

Not to hand, but if you let me know the format, i'll throw something together.

Hi @PaulJ

With the videos it would I guess just be a CSV file with the ZXDB ID, the series, the episode and the start time if possible?

I'm happy to do the magazines.

Thanks

Nice show yet again... I might be imagining it, but I swear that you're making up excuses to load up Jetpac in every episode... ;)

I didn't realise Surf Champ was so unplayable.. Is it even vaguely possible to play if you don't have the mini-plastic surfboard? (Not that it looked possible with it...)
