I remember the screening of this and the reactions vividly- it took me about half way through to absolutely sure I was being drawn along by the nose, but I couldn't believe anyone would be taken in completely- there were so many deliberate clues! And people were so cross at being taken in - hilarious.

Actually you can buy Forgotten Silver in NZ, from the filmmaker himself - it's available in Costa Botes' DVD Store (it includes the Behind the Bull 'making-of' doco as well):

Hi Jodie, I have looked elsewhere and unfortunately Amazon does seem like the only place you can get it!

I am very keen to get my hands on a copy of this, yet the only one I can find is through - surely there is somewhere in NZ I can get this?

I remember seeing this and at first definitely getting sucked in. However by the end I was pretty sure it was a great fake. At work the next day debate raged. I remember wishing it was true. Actually the first time I'd heard of Peter Jackson...who surely is thoroughly forgiven by now!
