I recall a pommy TV program on twitchers a few years ago, there was one
bloke who did all his birding on TV.   He used a video recorder to record
different programs so he could look at them almost frame by frame in his
own time.
I dont think this is quite ethical for someone who is capable of getting
around, but its a great idea for someone who is incapacitated in some way
eg. old age.   In that case I cant wait to get old and start TV Twitching.
