    I thought it was the Daily Mirror? I asked Dad if he could go into the shop to get this paper whilst I was at work, got back home this evening looked through the paper and theres nothing about Larry.

    Maybe its tomorrow? *touches wood*

    I thought it was just here that was having the problem. I asked staff at Sainsburys and Tesco but no sign of it.

    memorial special

    I couldn't find it either have emailed the express newspaper (where it was advertised) but as yet have had no response. WH Smith looked on their computer order and couldn't find anything!

    Initially i thought it was going to be a pull out tribute with weds paper so I bought 2 copies yesterday but its not that
    However not wasted as LH was featured in an article

    I hope the larger stores like WHS will have it in stock by saturday!

    Larry Hagman special

    Just to let you all know I have phoned the Express and they have scrapped the plans to print the Larry Hagman Dallas meroial special, they couldn't give me a reason why! I was not happy and will be writing a letter of complaint to them, I urge everyone to do the same!

    OOOhhh that's too bad, why? I was looking forward to it, it would have been really nice to have such a commemorative paper on Larry!
    I'm not happy either :sosad:

    Long live Larry in our hearts :peace:

    Maybe they didn't have any intention to in the first place. Perhaps I'm being cynical but the Express is tied in with Channel 5 and it did seem as if they were trying to cash in on this.

    Didn't know they were a connection there, they certainly blew hot then cold advertising the LHSpecial and reruning the series then postponong the rerun, obviously someones being paid too much for too little. Out of desperation i'm hoping they might still print the memorial special to tie in with the promised rerun over Christmas.

    To be fair though the papers did devote a fair bit of coverage to Larry over last weekend.

    I too looked high and low for the Larry Hagman memorial special. I went to three different supermarkets, a WH Smiths and a couple of small newsagents, but no joy. I had a sneaky suspicion that the Express never bothered printing it. Very disappointing. I've never been a fan of the Express, but I certainly shan't be rushing to buy an another Express anytime soon.
