    Any Chance Of: The Flash Gordon Serials?

    Does anybody know if there are plans for the restoration and release of the Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers serials on Blu-ray?

    HD-DVD - Does R2 Get Left Behind?

    I'm wondering what will happen with R2 releases when (and if) HD becomes the standard for DVD releases in R1. As far as I can ascertain, the UK Government has no policy towards HDTV as they reckon it will be hard enough getting the public to switch over to digital standard definition broadcasts...
