    Hi Richard,

    They had a glitch about 6 months ago and this worked for me as a workround when the site was busy:

    Got to the TNA site and use the records tab to go to Discovery Catalogue

    put AIR 78/70 in the search box.

    Click the title given

    DO NOT CLICK THE ADD TO BASKET

    Click the View this record tab then click the green download full record box on the righthand side of screen

    Big file of approx 400 mb will spool when done you will get two files in your explore download box

    click both to open as the two pdfs that go to make up the record.

    Edit - Sorry Richard they have removed the "View this record tab" so my workround is stuffed.

    Regards
    Ross

    Thanks Ross. Tried a number of times and as the file is 2,386 MB, it was taking a month of sundays, and then would just kick you out. At least the old way, even if there was 7-10 pieces of a file, you could still download it. Is this there way of making it impossible to retrieve the data?
    Regards, Richard

    Hello Paul. I was planning on downloading a fair number of them. The one I was trying to get was Air 78/85.
