The Pyrenean Mountain Dog Club of Great Britain
Film, Video & DVD Library
& International Film Exchange

Further down this page you can see a list of Video tapes available ‘on loan’ to all fully paid-up club members. No more than two tapes may be borrowed at the same time and they may be kept for a maximum of one calendar month from the time of receipt. When ordering, please state clearly the numbers and titles as shown. The responsibility is with the borrower to ensure that they are returned within this time limit, if by post, by registered or recorded delivery, and in secure packing to prevent any damage in transit.
Tapes may be collected in person at any Club event, but please send in your request beforehand in order that those you have chosen will be available on the day, as only a limited number can be on display on the Club Stand. Requests can be submitted by mail, e-mail or telephone and you will be advised, at that time, of the cost of postage & packing, if this is applicable.
Some of the video tapes, which have been on sale over the years and which feature the club shows in general together with breed classes at many of the major Championship shows, as well as Pyreneans at shows abroad or in their natural habitat, are still in stock and can be purchased at a cost of £10.00 each plus postage & packing. Copies of any of the other tapes on the following lists can also be supplied at the same cost, but please all 28 days for delivery, as only a few are held in stock, so copies would have to be made professionally, from the original ‘masters’.
Just as video tapes replaced the old medium of 8 mm or 16 mm cine film 25 years ago, DVDs are now progressively replacing the ‘old’ video tapes. The Pyrenean Mountain Dog Club of Great Britain is keen to ensure that these archives are maintained for posterity and for this reason selected video tapes are now being copied to DVD. These disks are available to all club members on the same conditions as the previous medium of video tapes. Selected DVDs can be purchased from the Club at a cost of £5.00 each with postage and packing. Overseas members are encouraged to verify that their DVD player is capable of playing disks produced for the U.K., before submitting a loan request or order to purchase.
For loans of videos or purchases of videos or DVDs, please apply to:
