Can someone help me?

Im planning on making a 4 minute documentary for Channel 4. I wanted to use some background tracks from the old tomb raider games. What do I have to do in order to not to violate copyright. What am I supposed to do to get their permission?:confused:

Well you could have a disclaimer..but if it's going broadcast I'd suggest you make a topic at the Eidos forums requesting permission that's you're best bet.

Or you could contact Channel 4 to request permission from Eidos for you. By the way this all sounds very interesting! what's the documentary about?

da tomb raider!

I think that press relations would be best, but that is only my guess.
