Years and years ago the BBC broadcast a documentary called 'That Fling Thing'. It followed a few Cowal hopefuls as they went through the last few days before Cowal and then the Championship itself, and in it Colleen Rintamaki wins her (what I remember) first World title. I recorded it onto videotape, but it's useless now. And it's not on YouTube where I can find it. Does anyone know of the documentary still available to see?

"That Fling Thing" which was produced in 1995 by the BBC with Colleen Rintamaki and Tony Cargill. It is a 30 minute documentary and its last transmission date is 1996-07-10. Perhaps you could ask to the BBC if the video is still available? Justine, an Australian teacher (I've heard, not sure), has a Pal copy of the video she copied a lot of times for her dancers. Perhaps you can try to contact her? Only way I can give you for this is the forum website where I found the information: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/highland-dance/message/10752 Hope it helps!

I have also searched for this online and can't seem to find it anywhere. If anyone finds access to this hopefully you can post it for the rest of us. I remember watching this film years ago at the Simon Fraser dance workshop they used to put on and had no idea at the time what I was really seeing. Very cool!

Slightly on the same topic there is a BBC documentary about some irish dancers competing in their world championships made a couple years ago. It's on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4ZqBr9qvL8 - I thought it was good. I found this link about 'That Fling Thing' that lists the director and producer - might be able to track one of them down for a copy - http://ftvdb.bfi.org.uk/sift/title/552337
