Super 8 or VHS to DVD conversion – Can you help?


I have in my possession a Super 8 film and a VHS tape containing images of High Wych and Allens Green from 1965, the latter being a conversion of the first.    Is there anybody amongst you who is able and willing to convert either to a DVD compatible video file?   I am told that conversion from  the original Super 8 would result in the best quality image.

My idea would be to combine the 1965 images with ones from the present day and perhaps sell the resulting disc for charity.  If you think you can help e-mail me at theo at vandebilt  dot co dot uk

Please do not use the comment facility as I am swamped with spam and might accidentally delete your your message as a result.

Isn’t this a jolly picture?  And aren’t these leeks fine specimens?           From left to right you see Nigel Rivers, Fred Kempthorne, Sid Puncher and an unknown. Picture taken at the climax of  a gardening competition sponsored by High Wych’s famous hostelry.  I would date the scene some time in the mid eighties. Can anybody tell me more?
