    Very interesting reading in the Videoville column of todays NY Daily News. In a discussion with Kate Winn, director of home video for A&E, several points were made regarding old tv series on home video:
    "DVD's are greatly outselling their VHS counterparts,we will be switching to DVD-only releases of our Cult Television product line beginning in January."
    Winn says that A&E will soon issue the 1958-61 detective series"Peter Gunn" and 1960's "Supermarionation" adventures from Gerry Anderson,like "Captain Scarlet" and "Stingray".
    I can't wait. Can UFO and Supercar be far behind? [​IMG]

    I have the R2 box set of Cpt Scarlet - the transfers are superb, and the sound has been nicely remixed into 5.1
    IIRC the original mono is on the discs as well.
    Joe 90 will follow and then UFO
    SIG!
