I have just received from a Greek some additional information on these VCDs:

The discs were sold in Greece with a newspaper, as special offer, 2008-2010 maybe.

Nice design. I think I only own a couple of VCDs, Doctor Who ones from a magazine. Though I do have a single-episode audio CD of a "missing episode", from a newspaper "free" gift (and some music CDs).

Hum-hum design, though even during the heyday of the VCD this medium was not so fashionable because of the quality. I remember how Alan Hayes complained about the quality of the episode From Venus with Love on the British VCD, when I did not have it yet. Ha, when I bought this I read the lettering on the box: This does not, of course, reflect the quality of the Region 2 DVD of The Avengers Definitive Dossier 1967, out now from Kult TV priced 24.99 Very Happy



All in all, as far as the VCDs, I only have this British one and three Greek ones with Linda Thorson episodes. But I am planning to buy five Greek VCDs with Diana Rigg in the coming days. Wink

Not a bad design, graphics wise, LORD, I've seen much much worse...as far as quality of the broadcast, I've can't comment, as I've seen seen one..and can only rely on friends of nine, who lived in those regions, who had the chance to sample 'em
