Just wondered if anyone had heard anything regarding a possible DVD release for the series this year? I've been keeping my eye on the Network website, but there's nothing planned for the next few months.
There isn't any news as yet but we must not give up hope. I think Robert (who started the petition) was hoping for 2000 signatures ages ago before Fremantle would take much notice. Robert did post a message on The old T-Room message board in January 2005 (one whole year ago) an excerpt is below:
"If it helps my petition keeps going from strength to strength so hopefully as this year progresses more people will sign the petition. I'll bring the petition to Fremantle's attention at some point to let them know the demand is there and if they see the demand is there they might consider releasing the series you never know. What will bother Fremantle is the money side of things obviously. If somebody is going to buy the rights to the music and sound effects they would I presume have to get the money back through people buying the dvd's and they'll want a lot of buyers won't they. How much money are we looking at do you think for somebody to buy the rights to the music and sound effects. Perhaps we could chip in between ourselves and help them out money wise, what do you say. When I last spoke to Fremantle they told me they would want at least 2000 signatures on my petition before they think about releasing it on dvd. It currently has 441 signatures on it so hopefully by the end of this year it will be up there at the 2000 mark as 3-5 different people sign it everyday."
We are currently on 1046 signatures which is quite something for a programme which hasn't seen the light of day on the TV (apart from a very fleeting appearance on the CiTV Birthday Bash programme 3 years ago) in the past 12 odd years. All we can do is encourage people to sign the petition - so if any of you reading this haven't signed it yet here is a link:
