The New Avengers as yet hasn't received any restoration and Optimum's plans to release The Avengers on DVD didn't include it.

Hopefully some day we will see a beautifully restored boxset of those episode. they would look stunning I'm sure.

Nothing wrong with the source materials, I would imagine. The film transfers used for the home video releases around the world are old and technically very poor. A modern transfer from the negs would yield results of a far higher standard.

It would be great to have these restored - especially The Eagle's Nest which was a shaky mess on the last box set.

The differences between New and "old" have been well covered elsewhere, but forgetting the Avengers connection for a moment, The Persuaders! (another British buddy action series of the 70s) has been enthusiastically received following a thorough re-mastering.

Well, after years of waiting for TNA to get a digitally restored release, I've finally given up waiting and bought the Studio canal box set. Seeing as it's the same company who remastered the original show, I can't understand why TNA didn't get the same treatment. I've watched 2 episodes so far, and they're no better, no worse than I expected. Pretty much the same quality as my old VHS copies. They're pretty OK to watch actually, not shabby, but not pristine. No extras which is a shame. I guess now that I've bought this set, Studio canal will suddenly announce the restored release Exclamation Rich.
