    Does anyone know if Warner is planing to release the BBC TV series' "To the Manor Born" starring Penelope Keith or "Kepping Up Appearances" starring Patricia Routledge on DVD? These are two of my favourite Britcoms and I would love to see them on DVD! Any info would be great! Also, can anymore seasons of "As Time Goes By" be expected soon?

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Keeping Up Appearances would be MINE, as well! I seem to recall that BBC was working on issuing DVD's of all their titles, but I'm not sure what the timetable is.

    When this comes out I'll be sure and schedule a Candlelight Supper for my viewing party, with appropriate aperitifs.

    Mind the bicyclist, Richard!

    You are going to want to get a code-free DVD player.

    The first 2 seasons of both KUP and ATGB are coming
    out on DVD for region 2 in late September...

    Keeping Up Appearances will officially be released on September 16th in the UK.
    Within two weeks Universal , which distributes Keeping Up , will also be releasing Allo Allo season 1-2 on dvd.
    That release has a 19th August date.

    ATGB Series 4 was released in April, concurrently with the VHS set. WB/BBC is catching up with Series 1-3 being released on 9/17. Apparently future volumes of the series with arrive day and date with their VHS counterparts.

    For the most part this thread has been discussing R1 releases, but here is the tote board AFAIK:
    R1: As Time Goes By - Complete Series 4 (OUT), As Time Goes By - Complete Series 1-3 (9/17), Are You Being Served? - Complete Series 1-5 (8/27)
    R2: Keeping Up Appearances - Complete Series 1-2 (9/16), 'Allo, 'Allo - ? (8/19), As Time Goes By - Complete Series 1-2 (Late Sept)
    I think that's everything! Now where did I put the custard tarts? [​IMG]
