And the winners of the Babylon Berlin competition are…

For the past two weeks, TMINE has been running a competition to win one of two boxsets of seasons one and two of the rather marvellous Babylon Berlin on DVD.

All you had to do to enter was ‘Like’ the TMINE Facebook page and leave a comment on the competition entry post. Since Disqus malfunctioned for at least one person, I allowed commenting on the Facebook post announcing the competition for said person.

Entry closed last night and the following people were all smart and talented enough to want to have Babylon Berlin on DVD and to follow the instructions:

Look at the advanced technology that runs TMINE, hey? Have you ever seen its like before?

Anyway, as usual, together with the mighty power of the Internet Random Number Generator, I’ve picked two people at random from the entries to receive the DVDs. And they are…

Mark Clapham and Jay Eales! I’ll be notifying them by Facebook as well about their wins.

Commiserations to everyone else – I’d love to have been able to given away nine DVD boxsets but unfortunately I couldn’t. Maybe one day…

Keep your eyes peeled to TMINE, fans of German TV, because I’ll be launching another competition in the next day or so, this time to win DVDs of Deutschland ’86.

UPDATE: Not the next day or so – the start of May, I’ve been told!
