Sorry to hear you've still not got the DVD yet Blackiecats, that's so annoying when that happens, I ordered a DVD from Zavvi a few months ago and that took a few weeks to arrive after the release date so you never know.
I've noticed Revelation Films have updated their fan zone with a interview with John Hasler, read it here - it's a great read.
And today I've seen the Wonders in Letterland DVD in my local HMV store, I had a moment in the shop and felt like crying. I'll check back another day and see if it's still there, although they are charging £15 for it in store it's only £7.99 on their website! If it is still there I'll move it around so rather than just being able to see the spine I'll place it facing forwards so people can see the cover!
Great news! I finally got a copy of the T-Bag dvd tuesday (Amazon admitted it must be lost and mailed another copy out)
I've been watching it over tuesday night and last night. It's really great to have these in digital form, with a big thanks to Revelation Films (I actually remember emailing them asking if they would release it back in the day when the petition first went up! lol)
I did notice on a couple of eps (off top of my head one was the Indiana Ink Spot) that the picture very slightly goes up and then back down (it's very slight, like a little jitter...kinda blink and you'll miss it kinda thing) However it's obvious this is due to the age of the source material and considering they only just made digital prints, it's amazing there aren't much worse faults!
I have to say I enjoyed the commentaries. While no big revelations were revealed it was nice for all to look fondly on what memories they had. It was expected that a lot they would't remember, but it was great hearing John and Jennie's take on what went on, on a day to day basis and how they were looked after. I love the fact they spoke about going to the studio next door and appearing in The Sooty Show Christmas Special (I knew I'd seen at least Jennie in the background on that! lol) So I'd be glad of more commentaries!
Talking of The Sooty Show...how about releasing series sets of that next Revelation? I'd love to hear commentaries with Matthew Corbett, Brenda Longman and Sallie Corbett!!
Anyway really enjoyed the DVD and can't wait for the next in January ;D
omg when will it be released here? I mean, i know these things take time but like its been said, there is a HUGE fan base for T.bag here in Australia.
I think a DVD distributer would need to contact Fremantle Media and show interest in this case.... I think Revelation Films likely contacted Fremantle after seeing that there was some interest there. If it were left to Fremantle we'd have got 'The Best of T-Bag', with a hotch-potch of eps from all over Just look at their Sooty DVD releases (even releasing the same eps over and over!) They need to grasp the fact that these days folks only want complete series sets and not random eps! lol ......RANT OVER.......
I've got my DVD through the post today and I've already watched the first two episodes and watched the galleries, for those who haven't seen it/received it yet there's something else in 'special features', but I won't spoil it.
It's great to see the very start of episode one as my VHS copy starts a few seconds in as Thomas pushes the rocking horse. I've also seen the first few minutes of the commentary for episode one. Commentaries are available on four episodes (1, 2, 9 &10) and there are many more photographs in the gallery for this series than on the first series DVD.
I also love the 'episode selection' menu with the town clock! I don't want to rush through watching all the episodes as we'll have until May to wait for the next series.
