News: Network to release BBC classics


Network, noted British film and TV archivists, are about to reissue a slew of classic BBC titles on DVD. Later this year, we can expect to see (awkward rights and music licensing issues allowing) box sets of essential and beloved shows like The Goodies, Ripping Yarns and Till Death Us Do Part, as well as more obscure titles (All Passion Spent and Johnny Jarvis, anyone?). Hopefully, there will be more classics and oddities along the way – I’m sure we could all curate a long list of requested titles.

The first releases will be out as soon as the technical gubbins can be sorted out – watch this space (or the print edition of The Reprobate) for reviews.
