VOLUMES I & II (The York Years) Volume I
Earliest recorded front page

April 1999
(Volume Nº 1 : Issue Nº 6)



The flying Mr Chips graced the front page of the website from the start of Volume I through to the demise of the York-hosted site at the end of Volume II.

The original website looked much the same as this screengrab from April 1999 except for the following differences: 1) less items in the index; 2) no Commercial Sector index; 3) no pink banana or Gong mandala images (they arrived during Issue Nº 4).

The blurb reads:
Audio/Visual Woman Productions are a media publishing company, producing a variety of programmes in the media of Television, Radio, Film, and Literature. You are visitor number 112439 to this website. Here are a few of our productions, some of which contain naughty words:...

ComSec front page

Summer 1999
(Volume Nº 1)



The Commercial Sector was launched during Issue Nº 4. Hosted by Netcolony, it provided much needed extra space (albeit with banner advertising).

The blurb reads:
Audio/Visual Woman Productions are happy to introduce you to this exciting annexe tacked on to our world of stuff. Here's just a selection of the stuff we have to offer, here in the commercial sector.
York front page

July 1999
(Volume Nº 1 : Issue Nº 8)



There's a chunkier font for the title, and new wording in the blurb:
Audio/Visual Woman Productions are a media publishing company, producing a variety of programmes for Television, Radio, and Film, in addition to publications in the printed sector. You are visitor number 112439 to this website. (You may experience problems on some of our Commercial Sector pages. Netcolony is behaving in very strange ways at the moment. Until we move to newer and more efficient premises, we offer our sincere apologies for any crap they cause.) Here are a few of our productions, some of which may contain the odd naughty word:...

Volume II
York front page

October 2000
(Volume Nº 2 : Issue Nº 11)



How things looked at the York front page at the end of its life. The mandala became animated from I(10), followed (probably before the end of Volume I) by the warping Mr Chips animation. The spinning mandala was replaced by the cute picture of the badger probably during Volume II.
VOLUME III
(The Itinerant Volume)
Xoom (Issues 1-8);
(Netscape (Issue 9));
Freeserve (Issues 10-12)

Xoom front page

April 2001
(Volume Nº 3 : Issue Nº 5)

The Xoom "Corporate Suite" site was launched in the summer of 1999 (towards the end of Volume I), primarily to host a .avi excerpt from the New Soap. With the demise of the York site at the end of Volume II, the Xoom site became the main front door. The original page was not entirely dissimilar to this screengrab save the following differences: 1) less flashy title, more akin to the title on the other two sites but perhaps in a serifed font; 2) no Mr Chips image as far as I recall; 3) no cyber-coppice disclaimer; 4) no fake sponsorship.

This was the front page at the end of the Xoom/NBCi era before that site went off line on 15th July 2001 (
Issue Nº 8).

The blurb here reads:
Welcome to the A/V Woman Productions Corporate Suite. Here we deliver the cream of entertainment at a price that's nice. The very best of A/V Woman entertainment is available through orifices at this website. Some of the finest lingerie and camphor wood has been used in the production of this site. Visitors are warned that they may experience certain funny smells. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
This site is being re-thought. First it is pared down. Then it is chewed a little. In time it will grow again, in a more entertaining form. This process, this coming of age, this drastic action we call CYBER-COPPICING.
Freeserve front page

Summer 2001
(Volume Nº 3)


Here's the holding card that preceded the launch of the Freeserve site at the end of August 2001 (Issue Nº 10). It is identical to the old Xoom header.

ComSec front page

October 2001
(Volume Nº 3 : Issue Nº 12)


While the main site has been off-line through the summer, the Netcolony hosting has been grinding along regardless, primarily in the guise of the ACNC sub-site. Two months after the Freeserve relaunch, the ComSec gets this neon-headed redirect page ahead of its eventual demise.

The blurb reads:
The material on this web-space provider is being revised, re-thought and cyber-coppiced. Visitors are warned that they may experience certain funny smells. In the meantime, the very best of A/V Woman entertainment is available via this web page. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
VOLUME IV Issues 1-6
Freeserve front page

December 2001
(Volume Nº 4 : Issue Nº 1)




The relaunched site initially used the same graphics and layout as the Xoom front page. But by Volume IV the stained glass was traded in for the brushed steel look seen here. The content of the page is unchanged save the muted colour-scheme. This format would remain for another six months, making its final appearance in Volume IV(6).
