    What are the BBC Archives? An offshoot of the Warner Archives?

    I ask because today's announcements included MOD rereleases of Doctor Who serials from BBC Archives. And the The Doctor Who serial rereleases on MoD once again make me wonder if we'll ever get the last couple seasons of Call The Midwife out on Blu through some archives program.

    I'd guess they are as Warner does the distribution for most, if not all, of the BBC series in the US.

    I have the first three series (British for seasons) of All Creatures Great and Small, and that is certainly the case with those.

    Luther still only gets a DVD-only release her in North America, sigh. I’ll import the UK Blu version.

    Well, the extras fro Shout Factory's Space: 1999 release have been announced in today's release list and the Message From Moonbase Alpha is not included. Bummer. Looks like I will have to keep the A&E Mega set that I have. Too bad. I was hoping to be able to get rid of it.

    Just thought I'd bring this up: looks like Mill Creek is, this August, going to come out with an all-in-one of the 90s NBC/Family Channel Hart to Hart movies, all 8 of 'em-- it's called the "Movies are Murder Collection," and this release will have all the movies on regular discs, and not the uber-expensive MODs of before...

    Saw a Lassie set at Wal-Mart with I think 16 episodes. Is this something new, or a reissue of that best of set from a decade or more ago?

    I own that set, but not sure where it is to check the episode count to see if it's the same.

    Heh.

    Big Bang Theory complete series set with special packaging.

    Wonder if there will be huge howls about glue sticking onto the discs, warped discs, etc .... similar to other past complete series sets of this type, such as Smallville, The West Wing, etc ....

    Right... but among them, another entry from Hanna-Barbera's 1962-63 New Cartoon Series is among the new releases in July: Lippy the Lion and Hardy Har-Har! I only first saw this cartoon in 1994 on The Family Channel and then on Cartoon Network mere months later.

    Heh.

    All those Fox tv on dvd releases are now all dvd-mod.

    How the mighty have fallen, including Homeland.

    Also all those recent/current dvd-mod releases by Fox, have a really nasty extra drm on them which makes them very non-trivial to rip to the computer. (These recent/current Fox dvd-mod discs don't have any generic css encryption, but have an alternate nasty drm on them).

    Aaaaaaaand they've lost my money.

    I have 9 seasons of Modern Family on DVD. Won't make it an even 10. Or 11.


    Wonder if it's Disney's dumb call or a vestigial Fox decision?

    Most likely a remnant of the previous Fox regime.

    Fox has been using this nasty drm variant for almost the last year or so on their dvd-mod tv show releases. The earliest titles which had this nasty drm, date back to September 2018.

    Disney hasn't used any extra basketcase drm on their bluray and dvd releases, since 2011 or so.

    Are these Doctor Who re-releases the same DVD's from before or has the picture quality been remastered?
