Perhaps the reason why this show has never been released on Video or DVD is the content? Indeed the BBC would perhaps like to pretend this series never happened. Why? I thought it was the best children's drama series I ever saw. Yet they do not acknowledge it's existence in any way. Bring it back!
Let the kids of today judge for themselves! When I tried to explain the content to my own children they were eager to see this for themselves. Then we realised that it is not available anywhere. I asked the BBC with no joy and found myself talking to a brick wall.
