A new box set of 12 DVD's is released to celebrate 60 years of ITV shows.
It only contains one 'Avengers' episode but it's great to see that Steed and Mrs Peel feature strongly on the cover.

It's interesting that Network don't actually own the rights to The Avengers on DVD so must have struck a licensing deal. The same goes for 'Auf Wiedersehen, Pet' which also features on the set.

Only just noticed this thread! Yes, it is curious that, from a licensing perspective, The Avengers was included on the set given that ITV doesn't own any merchandising rights on the series. A deal must have been struck with Studio Canal...

Following on from the huge success of the new Hi-Def releases of "The Professionals", Network had been very keen on doing the same with "The New Avengers" but when they looked into the possibility, they weren't able to strike a deal with Studio Canal. So in terms of the ITV boxset, I can only assume that it was possible to deal with Studio Canal for a single episode... and possibly ITV themselves (part-)funded the license.
