A few of the scenes have been put on YouTube.share
I regard it as my patriotic duty to upload scenes to YouTube in an attempt to raise awareness that there is a demand out there for the series to be released on DVD. I have received several communications from fans in the US asking if I know about a DVD - I direct them to this site. Surely if there is a demand in the US and if 2entertain are indeed the company that hold the rights to make that release possible, then knowing there is a market in the US ought to be a major factor in arriving at a positive decision.
Coincidentally, only in the last week we have been informed that YouTube and the BBC have joined forces and to quote from the BBC's own website, “The BBC has struck a content deal with YouTube, the web's most popular video sharing website, owned by Google.
The BBC's director of Future Media and Technology, Ashley Highfield, said the BBC would not be hunting down all BBC-copyrighted clips already uploaded by YouTube members - although it would reserve the right for example to swap poor quality clips with the real thing.
"We don't want to be overzealous, a lot of the material on YouTube is good promotional content for us," he said.
I would love my uploads to be changed for better quality ones!!
NB. For the uninitiated the term, “I regard it as my patriotic duty” is a line taken from the series!
Well I'm very glad you've done so and do echo your wish for it to be put onto DVD - it really was a terrific series.
Am trying to remember where the quote comes from. I suspect it was made by Schulz rather than Neuheim - not a reference to Salon Kitty, was it?
You are quite correct - Schulz makes the comment in Episode Two, to Krauss his previous employer, as he makes his way up the stairs in Salon Kitty to see Bertha.share
A purloined DVD is available on ebay. It is not best quality but, until the powers that be get the idea that this is a salable item, it will do.share
Don't anyone waste money! I called 2entertain just before Easter & it's looking good & they want to release the DVD very soon! Wait just a little longer for 2e! They are tops! They always keep their word too, as in the case of 'The Green Man' (1990 BBC TV with Albert Finney); they promised May 28th, it has now been classified a 12, & will be on schedule. They don't jerk people off like Warner do (as in the case of 'O Lucky Man', which Warner postponed indefinetely from June 06).share
