    I too would like to see more Home & Away on DVD. Years ago when it first started, YTV here in Canada, aired it but I have not seen it since and would love to see more sets released.

    The Saddle Club (a Canadian - Australian production) and H20. We own both of the series in their entirety on VHS, but a complete DVD release might be nice one day.

    Water Rats and Stingers are available on R4 quite expensive on ezydvd.com.au hence trying to find a cheaper site

    Nikki,

    Thanks. A curious thing about that series is that from Season (or as they say there, 'Series') Three onward, the cast has all changed, but in several cases the storylines are being repeated. We've watched the new series a few times over here, and wondered why an entirely new cast -- most with the exact same names as their predecessors -- was used. I'm guessing that the older actors did not want to return, but I have no evidence of this. It's just a curious thing, from my perspective.

    Seconded! I have several episodes of this so-bad-you-gotta-see-it ripoff of Star Trek on grainy, multi-generation PAL VHS, but would love the chance to upgrade!

    The "Down Under" version of Are You Being Served? would also be welcome (despite its bad reputation), as well as complete episodes (not compilations) of The Paul Hogan Show.
