    Is there a way of doing this legally?

    Presumably this can only be done legally with a 'home-made' DVD, in which case you would have the source material - unless it was from a DVD-R deck, but then you're not allowed to keep TV recordings anyway.

    Not judging what anyone wants to do, but just curious about the answer that that question.

    This place has a lot of very useful "How To" articles and tools

    Though as you say - it all is a bit "iffy" legally.

    If it's from the BBC or Channel 4 you are if it's for educational purposes

    One of our local school even got permission to digitize them for staff to use on their white boards

    quote taken From
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/foi/docs/histor...Policy_IA1.htm

    Educational purposes - education establishments can join, and are licensed by, the Education Recording Authority (ERA) to record TV & Radio programme material for educational purposes. Since 1990, this has entitled them to record all BBC programming off air with back-up support from the British Universities Film & Video Council (BUFVC) and National Film & Television Archive (NFTVA).
    It also gets around anyone that worries about copyright as well
