Talk at the Treasure Hunt was that Lumiere are having problems locating master prints of some episodes of The New Avengers and this was the delay in getting a blu-ray collection together for the series.

Ah! That makes sense. Many thanks for that info.
I am assuming it is Studio Canal now, who purchased everything from Lumiere. They obviously had to sort through everything that Lumiere held for Avengers/TNA.

Sorry, yes, that should be Studio Canal.

It would be good to know if that is the case-though what it might be is guesswork. But more often than not when proposed/desired releases are held-up, cancelled or just can't be done there is some sort of issue around it. Unlike the original Avengers, TNA was an "Avengers Mark 1 production", formed by Clemens/Fennell and music composer Laurie Johnson. Although Studio Canal bought the rights perhaps there is some issue there?? Presumably, as Brian Clemens is sadly no longer with us, his share is now owned by his "estate". which might be a factor ???

Or it could be a completely different issue, such as the cost of restoration. in these tough financial times when budgets are being slashed, might be too much at present for the expected returns. Or even something to do with the master transfers perhaps? For the original series a set of unused pristine-condition masters were found which enabled new restoration with outstanding results. Perhaps this is not the case with TNA, to enable greatly improved results. Or it could be something else entirely!!



probably all of the above....then again, the estates of those who are departed, could hinder...or depending on the contract..could help...all in all, it boils down to monies....
