I have been going through some old VHS tapes before they end up in the bin and it seems that for some reason my Dad had a habit of taping the BBC hogmanay programs and not really taping over them.

So far on You tube I have posted Scotch and wry from 1991;



And Rikki Fulton welcoming in 1990;



I have Scotch and wry from 1990, the car crash that was the 1989/90 BBC1 Hogmanay coverage and the City lights Christmas special from 1991 and will post them when I get a chance.

I had a go using one of the websites hosting yon weird Google 'Deep Dream' software - upload your image, wait a week or so, then (having bookmarked your image's page) revisit it. Here's the one I used:

http://psychic-vr-lab.com/deepdream/

(Be aware: it shows a gallery of images, anybody can upload photos, so this being the internet some of them are a bit porny. Probably not a good website for viewing at work.)

I fed it this (being an art thing in the woods somewhere, natch):

After their computer had a good long sleep on it, this arrived:

I have to say that is quite bloody odd.

It looks like a picture thats been spoilt by somebody who thinks ramping all the settings to maximum on their HDR programme is arty.

If you ever wondered how to get a scaffold round the top of your 200-foot chimney stack then you're in luck


(There are links that'll tell you how to get a ladder up there in the first place.)
