Beauty and the Beast Audiotapes are fan-produced cassette tapes containing audio clips from the TV show Beauty and the Beast.
The tapes were arranged either thematically or by character. The tapes were between 60 minutes and 90 minutes long. Unlike videotapes, audio cassette tapes used a universal format, thereby allowing these UK produced tapes to be more easily sold in the US and Canada.

About My Tapes
All my tapes comprise only soundtrack from episodes of Beauty And The Beast. There is music on some of them but it is only the music from the series. Every tape has a log with it giving a title to each excerpt - usually a snip of the dialogue in that piece (see example). All excerpts are arranged chronologically (except MORE BEAUTY AND THE BEAST which is arranged more by mood). Theme Tapes are explained by the title. Character Tapes contain ALL dialogue which involved that character - whether they said it or heard it (and in some cases received it as a message). NB they DO NOT contain sequences which were in another character's dream NOR scenes where Paracelsus masqueradedas the title character (those scenes are on the PARACELSUS tape). If possible I have included all the soundtrack when that character is on the screen but in some cases I have edited some incidental music to keep the tapes to manageable lengths. Where a character did not have sufficient material to fill a tape I have either combined two characters on one tape (eg EDIE & JENNY) or repeated the A side on the B side (eg WILLIAM) or both (eg EDIE & JENNY). If you would like a character tape for a character that is not listed on my flyer please tell me as I can probably prepare one for you at no extra charge. I am also willing to prepare audiotapes for your chosen `theme' or even whole episodes if you wish. You would still only pay for the tape and postage. My prices merely cover my costs. I do not want to make any profit. My wish is merely to "Share The Dream".
