Download the key for it (the "(linux)" link at the bottom of the page, or
the link which I've just added nearer the top). Once you have it:
# apt-key add pubkey.gpg
Err, I swear I looked. I said to myself, now whats logical? That the
key is hidden somewhere?? No. It has to be on these pages.. So I
looked. Obviously you have just updated the template for those pages
now that I highlighted the pgp stuff was missing. right? Right?

$ man apt_preferences
Edit /etc/apt/preferences. You probably want something like:
Pin: release o=www.youmustbejoking.demon.co.uk
Again, thanks for the tip. Can't wait to have working vdr and not
have to compile it myself (I am in the process of switchingfrom
Gentoo. Which I like, but my PC is just not fast enough for, and I
could never get X working un it.
