Looking for Great (Brunel) on DVD

Obscure DVD Hunt: Great (Isambard Kingdom Brunel), an animated biography of Brunel by Bob Godfrey. It won an oscar in 1975 but it's not for sale anywhere. Any ideas?

It's a fantastic musical comedy in a Yellow-Submarinish style, as far as I can remember. I saw it on British TV about 15 years ago and have never seen it repeated, or for sale on VHS, DVD or anything. I've tried all the obvious online stores and I always look in the VHS bins at second hand shops for it, but without success.

TV Cream gives it well deserved praise, but offers no leads.

Call Video Vault and see if they have any suggestions. If they can't find it, it can't be found.

Don't know if new registrations are currently available, but you might try requesting it on the forums of the torrent site UKNova. Obscure broadcasts from the 60s onward show up there frequently. You never know what someone has sitting in their attic.
