Remastering finished, DVD being finalised – Exclusive update exclusive update

Well, when I promise updates as soon as we have news I don’t normally expect that news to arrive within one day of the last post! However, it has…

  • The remastering has finished!
  • The distribution deal has been done and the paperwork signed!
  • The extras for the DVD are now being prepared!

We will have a release date for the DVD and Blu-ray very soon so keep checking back, it’s all getting quite exciting now!

Also, we’re working on an exciting … erm … thing for you all! so stay close by.

    best news ever! will the release date be in time to be a 10th anniversary special edition? and can you please include a (real) old witch to throw with every copy?

    We’ve already had more than 10 years since The Big Knights were launched and I’m not sure about the witch but you can expect plenty of digital extras 😉

    One question though if I may …
    Here we are, a near month after the exclusive and very welcome announcement and still ABD have not mentioned any of this on their own site and the ‘very soon’ details of the release weren’t that ‘soon’ after all. I do so hope that this wasn’t another false dawn over Borovia …

    Well, for starters, if you check over the last year or more, you’ll notice we’ve given you more updates than the ABD website and I can assure you they’re all 100% genuine and from the ‘horses mouth’.

    You’ll just have to trust us that a date for the release really is on its way. I think you have to take ‘very soon’ in the context of how long we’ve waited so far!!

    Bear in mind, we waited 8 years to get this thing rolling and in the last couple of years, in particular the last couple of months, we’ve seen real movement.

    P.S. Do you really think they’d go to the trouble of remastering the whole series only to shelve it again?

    That’s very reassuring, thanks. 3 Blu-Rays and a DVD for me then (really)! Please forgive my slightly worried questioning, i’m just very keen for this to happen and like everyone else i’ve been waiting a long time. 10 years+

    Yep, there are lots of keen people awaiting the release!

    I can understand it’s almost hard to believe anything is going to happen but it is!

    It’s been a long slog working out copyright issues and getting a distribution deal nailed down but that is all sorted now.

    Maybe we should stop putting ‘soon’? but it helps to convey to people that we’re not talking about a long time in the future, we’re really on the verge of something!

    Keep visiting and hopefully the next installment will actually be SOON! 😉

    Hoooraaaaaay! I just saw that Joking Apart finally got a DVD release in 2006, thanks to an independent individual… thought I was going to have to talk them into doing the same with this! So pleased to hear that will be unnecessary. 😀

    Um, any chance of a mailing list or a twitter feed or something rather than a ‘keep visiting’?

    We’ve got some changes planned for the site but until then there’s the RSS feed.

    When you say soon
    will it be in time for my wife’s surprise birthday present on the 31st July ?
    I really hope so and so do the children who have worn out the old VHS release!

    Unfortunately not Stuart, that much is certain, it is a few months off yet, maybe you could give her a ‘promise’ to get it when it comes out! 😉
