    Hi Invertebreaker:

    If you can get hold of this documentary, do so. It's quite brilliant and features some stunnning footage, notably Vampyroteuthis. However, it appears to be out of print now, so please don't wait to try and get hold of a copy, look around now before the remaining stocklists clear their shelves.

    I imagine it was deleted as no-one wants to buy videos any more. You can't even give them away now! DVDs are where the future lies.

    This shop offers the video for sale:

    http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/shop/suckers.html

    If that does not work, then keep an eye out on ebay. One will come up there before you know it. Good luck!

    There's also The Octopus Garden and Mimic Octopus: Incredible Imposter, both from Discovery channel. I don't know if they have tapes for those though.

    thanks all...the hunt begins. those other titles mentioned sound interesting as well. i managed to dub part of the mimic special, good stuff! i hope to find the rest somewhere on the vast exspanse that is the internet.
    anyhow, great leads most defi! thanks again.

    I dunno. I have it taped. You don't have it. Nyah nyah.

    Seriously though, there's a little at the end... give me a PM if you want me to find out where to ask for it.

    Hello Invertebreaker,

    Welcome to TONMO. Other documentaries worth chasing down are:

    Chasing Giants: On the Trail of the Giant Squid, starring our very good friend Steve O'Shea. This is a Discovery Channel production, and required viewing for anyone interested in the progression of Steve's hair-styles.

    National Geographic produced Sea Monsters: Search for Giant Squid. Features the now famous "critter-cam" deployed on a sperm whale.

    As for "Incredible Suckers," the PBS site provides information for ordering the video ($19.95), but doesn't indicate if it's in-stock.

    Also The Octopus's Garden is pretty good....cool shots of NZ underwater too! It was produced by Natural History NZ which is partly owned by Fox so you should be able to find it!
