The Eve of the Coronation
Well, I half watched it — had it on while I did other things. It's history, innit?
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Collection Count

Collection Count tracks my DVD/Blu-ray collection via a number of statistics every week.

Well, "every week" has gone slightly out the window this time: this update should've been posted last Saturday, but I've been too busy to work out the additions (the final result may look simple, but there were a few "am I replacing that DVD?" issues to consider), and so it's gradually slipped until it's almost a full 7 days late. I'm sure no one cares — I could just post a new update tomorrow and be done with — but, well, I care. A little bit.

So, here's the final update for April — only about 15 hours short of being an entire week late compared to its usual posting time. But nothing new arrived in that time, so it's still accurate to last Saturday. But a bunch of stuff is going to arrive tomorrow morning, so I still intend to post another "weekly" update over the weekend. Yeah, I buy too much stuff...

Number of titles in collection: 3,068 [up 10]
Of which DVDs: 1,029 [no change]
Of which Blu-rays: 2,039 [up 10]
— of which Ultra HD Blu-rays: 253 [up 4]
