“I've banged on about the mega-tittums course (coursing order 8765432) in methods such as Superlative or Muppet Show S before...”

..with good reason – it’s magnificent!

“...Unfortunately in n-1 part cyclic compositions (ie 7 part comps of Major), each lead of the MT course occurs in a different part of the composition, thus losing the impact of ringing the whole course in one go...


“...I recently got to thinking about ringing the course in its entirety as part of a n-part cyclic composition...The original idea was to come up with a peal comp on this plan, in as few methods as possible, containing as many of the 480 runs as possible. I'd be interested to see if anyone has any suggestions for this...How about a method with 90 changes per lead, giving a peal length as per the plan above, with all the runs”

Interesting. I am keen to see any progress here. A peal-length badboy version would be very exciting indeed.

As the overall aim here is to get all 480 run rows, I’m tempted to generalise and rephrase accordingly...what’s the shortest length 8-part anyone can produce which contains all 480 runs? Elegance and maximal symmetry are desirable.

Posing the question like this lends itself to interesting architectured approaches...previous 480-run solutions (whilst superb) have applied traditional constraints such as consisting of a number of different, treble-dominated methods.
