"We can't give 'em away," says Super Screen video shop manager Len Gumley as he contemplates shelves stacked with copies of Jimmy Savile's Christmas Kids Spectacular.
"The Best of Jim'll Fix It videos aren't doing well either. In fact we haven't sold any of them at all," he added sorrowfully.
"I accept that Sir Jim's reputation has taken a knock recently but hey - he's a national institution. He certainly should have been in an institution. Only joking! Jim wouldn't have minded as he loved a laugh.
"Another problem could be that the shows are on video tape. It's not a medium that's so popular now. Actually, it's not something people go for at all. I may have to rethink our whole business strategy," added the Luton-based shop owner.
It's a familiar story. Last year Len ran - for many months - a store in Bedford selling novelty landline telephones, imported from Iran.
"People are all using mobiles now aren't they? Also Special Branch hauled me in and questioned me about the Iran angle. There was nothing in those crates except phones I tell you. Many of them were faulty I concede."
So it looks like Len's in for another bleak Christmas. "We've had an order from Pitcairn Island for a box of the Kids Spectacular ones. That's a lock. They are going at the January sale price but it's a solid order subject to a phone call to confirm.
"They are all using Yogi Bear telephones out there by the way supplied by yours truly."
Len scratches his chin ruefully.
