The "Hunting of the Snark " is worth the hunt!
17 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

We also taped the "The Hunting of the Snark" and it is a little the worse for wear, but much loved. We have watched it often with our children (and now our grandchildren) and would love to see a copy released on DVD or Video.

Why is it that some of the best family entertainment rarely gets good distribution? The songs are fun, catchy and, at times haunting. Well worth sharing with a wider audience!

We saw the Australian concert version when it was performed to a packed house many years ago and it is still a stand-out memory. We too can't understand why it has never been released. We'll all willingly sign a petition.
