How to buy die (Zweite) Heimat on VHS?


Some people are looking for old VHS recordings of die (zweite) Heimat because there is no DVD release in their language. For example Portugese. If you have recorded it at the time, please let me know. We could for example scan the subtitles and offer the subtitles as a download from this website. With special software it can then be connected when playing the English or German DVD release.

Read the review by Alan Andres. The CDs don't contain some of the best music; particularly the music for cello and piano from episode 10 when Reinhardt goes to Venice.

There is another single CD of Die Zweite Heimat on Milan records (#887881 with 73 minutes of music) which was newly recorded after the film was broadcast in Germany. Unfortunately the performances aren't as compelling as the Bella Musica, and Mamangakis appears to have used a synthesizer in some of the new orchestrations. For the Heimat completist however.

The questionnaire

Since 1997 the questionnaire below was on this website to enable you to show your interest in a DVD-release. I collected more than 1000 responses. Now there is an English and a German DVD-release, many of you are being served. I keep this questionnaire up for those who want to indicate their wishes for a local DVD-release (Dutch, Finnish, Spanish or whatever) or want to show possible discontent with the features on the current releases. If you send in the survey, you are automatically subscribed to the DVD-newsletter. with news on the DVD-release. So far I have send out these four newsletters, two a year. If you want to unsubscribe, see the Mailman pages for heimat-dvd

When you want to send in the questionnaire, just copy-paste it into a mail message and To make things easy for you, you only have to put a cross between the brackets like this [x ] If you want to mess up the form that's fine with me, as long as it's understandable.
