Introduction


With DVDs having virtually eliminated videos as the preferred audio-visual format for home viewing, coupled with the availability of a small number of bowls DVDs, the introduction of a DVD section for this site was self-apparent.

Numbers


You'll see from the list below that I've come across details of only 11 DVDs, including one title (Story of Bowls) that also appears under Videos. If you know of any more please .

Buying DVDs


Amazon 'Marketplace' is always worth a visit to check prices of both new and second-hand DVDs, and eBay should never be excluded, either to check a 'Buy it Now' price or perhaps make a successful auction bid on one of the less common titles. Play.com is also well worth searching. Just type in the title of the DVD you're interested in and you should be offered Play.com's price as well as those from its PlayTrade suppliers who may well be more competitive. Before you buy or bid make sure that the DVD will be compatible with your player; you'll find further information here.


Please note that both the Amazon and eBay links provided above refer to the UK sites.
