Brian Clemens - The Interview DVD
I've just discovered a rare 105 minute DVD of what is described as the most complete interview ever given by Avengers/Professionals maestro Brian Clemens.
This limited edition DVD was recently re-discovered, restored and remastered and goes on sale on eBay for 12 on 25th March 2017. Looks like a must for Avengers fans Smile

eBay listing...
Brian Clemens was the power behind such TV series as "The Avengers", "Thriller" and "The Professionals", and his contributions to Film and TV across six decades, mark him out as one of the greatest and most respected TV and Film creators the UK has ever produced!
His life story is told in this revealing and often witty interview, conducted in 2003 in his writing room at his house in rural Bedfordshire, surrounded by his trusty typewriter and many items from the various productions he has contributed to over the years.

This interview was originally intended to feature as part of the DVD extras for a release of one of his TV series, but as the interview is one and three quarters hours long, space considerations meant the interview was never given a commercial release.
Meantime the master copy of the interview was lost due to a hard drive failure and it was believed the interview would remain unseen.
Recently a duplicate dub of the interview was found, and this has been remastered back onto DVD for fans to enjoy.

Now for the first and possibly only time, and with the permission of his family estate we present for you the definitive interview with the master of television writing and producing.

We are about to do a limited run of disks which will be released on
25th March 2017. The run will be largely determined by the response we get once orders start to come in, so order early to avoid missing out.

What is hugely interesting about that clip to me is that it dispels the myth that the original screen 'The Destruction of Mrs. Emma Peel' clapperboard prop from Epic used to be in Brian Clemens office. The one seen behind him in this interview is clearly not the screen used prop !

This is the screen matched clapperboard (down to every mark and blemish) and differs from the one seen behind Brian.

wow, interested here...wondering why it was never offered with a 'new' release of the series, by Lionsgate, or studio-canal ?

I went on ebay today and see all the DVDs have gone. From the clip on youtube it looks like it was an interesting interview and I'm sorry to have missed getting a copy.

If anyone got one and listened to it, please report to us what Clemens said specifically about The Avengers. Thank you!

Brian Clemens interview DVD relisted with more than 10 discs available.

Note: Due to unprecedented demand, the first limited edition of 50 disks sold out halfway before the listing was supposed to end!
This has left many fans missing out and disappointed! (1 buyer snapped up 4 disks in one go !)
As a result I feel it is only fair to do another small batch to satisfy demand, and keep everyone happy.

The DVD arrived today and of course I had to watch it straight away! A very satisfying non-stop informal conversation with Brian (from I think 2005), covering most of his film career, with lots about The Avengers. Really enjoyed seeing this.
