    The episodes have been newly remastered. The audio was remixed as well.

    I have the previous blu ray set and I believe the episodes look even better in this new release!

    I hope a full set of the new avengers is in the works too.

    I look forward to ordering the complete The New Avengers on Blu-Ray and soundtrack CD.
    Not only the series was good but the music as well.

    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.

    Disc 1

    Original Recording
    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

    Re-Recording
    5. Tale Of The Big Why
    6. Obsession
    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
    9. Contamination
    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!

    Thanks! Network dvd for these series sets??

    I did try an episode of the baron but it didn’t hold my interest.

    I also could never get into return of the saint. Finally sold my dvd set of that one earlier this year.

    The above trailers are for Network's Blu-Ray sets, which are Region Free.

    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.

    I would love the Man in a Suitcase blu, and as soon as it's a somewhat cheaper box set, I'll snatch it up. But the piecemeal release turned me off.
