Is this happening??
The New Avengers on Blu-Ray is ‘possible’ but the complete soundtrack CD is problematic
because of the master tapes. There used to be an incomplete music release
(The Music of Laurie Johnson Vol. 3 : The New Avengers) as part of a 3-CD set of Laurie Johnson's body of work.
1. The Midas Touch - complete episode score - 14 cues
2. To Catch A Rat - complete episode score - 23 cues
3. House Of Cards - complete episode score - 19 cues
4. The Last Of The Cybernauts...? - 1 cue
5. Tale Of The Big Why
7. Cat Amongst The Pigeons
8. A Flavour Of The New Avengers
9. The New Avengers - End Titles
Suite from “The Midas Touch”
1. Freddie Sees The Midas Guards
2. Main Title
3. Search Continues By Midas Guards
4. The Airport Chase
5. Professor Turner And Obsession With Gold
6. Turner Purdey And Gambit Give Chase
7. Walk Away
8. Red Mask Party Music
10. Freddy's Death Driving Over Cliff
11. Purdey At Pilton Down
12. Purdey, A Prisoner
13. Three To The Rescue
14. End Titles

I’d love a box set of the avengers music.
I’m sad that tapes are lost for music for the persuaders series and even another early saint cd set too.
I’m hoping new avengers is in the works for Blu Ray.
I was surprised that the avengers episodes on this new collection appear better better than the previous blu ray sets too.
Network's remastering on their various ITC sets is superb...I have most of what they've put out. Perhaps they will re-do The Avengers on Blu, but most certainly The New Avengers needs the most TLC. Do you have any of their other sets, Osato? Department S, The Zoo Gang, Man in a Suitcase, Randall & Hopkirk - Deceased, Captain Scarlet, Space: 1999, etc...they all look GREAT!
I do not. I have the 3 seasons of the avengers on blu ray as well as the persuaders.
I just watched a bit of the persuaders Blu Ray set yesterday too.
I marvel at how good everything looks on lg Oled screen!!
If you're a fan of spy stuff, Osato, I particularly recommend Department S and Man in a Suitcase.
My Cybernauts Trilogy Blu-Ray should be here in a week or so...can't wait to check out the remastered episodes!
Good news! According to The Avengers International forum:
"Tim Beddows of Network confirmed in a Q&A last night that they are definitely doing all of The New Avengers on Blu-ray but there is no idea of timescale or format of the releases. There was no mention of them revisiting The Avengers on BD."
And, from an announcement at last weekend's Elstree ITC event (via Roobarb's Forum):
"[They shared] a terrific film showing the logistics of restoring a couple of episodes and that there were roughly 40 cans used to get the best elements together from negatives, backup copy, audio etc. So it's a time consuming process and can't be rushed."
Apparently, Danger Man and The Sweeney Series 2-4 are in the works at some future stage, as well. The final 3 series of The Sweeney have not yet been transferred to HD.
