In Search Of: "On Hallowed Ground" Streetball Docu

Postby Blake_T » Sun Jan 07, 2007 12:19 am

heyas, i've been searching for a copy of the "on hallowed ground: streetball champions of rucker park" documentary that aired on TNT back in 2000.

willing to take any format, preferably DVD but willing to settle for a faded out VHS. a good Divx/Xvid/mpeg4 would probably suffice as well.

will pay upwards of $30 for a physical copy if someone can dig one up... or if you just want to hook me up for free and have me owe you a really big favor... that works too.

Your best bet would be a torrent. So you would have to download utorrent http://www.utorrent.com/

Then when you get that downloaded go to a torrent site like this one
http://scrapetorrent.com/

And download what you want. It could take a while but most of the time the quality is good. But make sure to scan the file before you open it, just in case.
Hope this helps.

been there, done that heh. no luck over about 2 years.

i'm OCD and pretty resourceful... have basically had no luck on this in the past few years. at one time i found someone who was selling VHS dubs on a message board, but that was a while back.

Have you tried contacting the guys that did the doc?...http://konwiserbros.com/...I would think that if they are a small time producers that they would have copies of their stuff...

jorr:

i sent an email to their contact@ address and it bounced. tried sending one to the other address that i dug up but haven't heard back. hoping that will lead to something.

jmammo:

it was shown a grand total of 3 times on TNT and never officially released. i figure my best bet is tryin to find some poseur lamur white boy that posts on a streetball message board and has a copy :P
