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.

I had both the US and UK sets for a short time and found the UK Optimum discs too hard to release from the clamps! In the end I was so fed up trying to get them out I decided to keep my region 1 sets and ditch the others!

well, the olde A & E releases of BOTH the Tara and TNA eras, aren't much better...looking like they simply dumped the VHS versions...how I wish for a re mastered version in Blu-Ray, for the U.S. market

Couldn't you have swapped them over? Alternatively, Amaray cases are quite cheap to buy online. Or a big disk storage box (I've got 400 or so in an aluminium carry case).

ONE thing that really irks me about those cases...the plastic after a matter of time, becomes real brittle...and breaks real easy..etc

I very much hope for a remastered release of TNA, but I would like to say this: I have the Contender set and am very happy with it (even though disc five has cracked).

We're so lucky to have DVD release available. I lived through the days of VHS taping, what an improvement DVD is. My brother is a fan of Murder, She Wrote and the Dutch release has the last series (and that one only) with French titles. I understand he was and is pissed about that, as was I about the same thing when it happened to series four of The Avengers.

But even despite that, DVD is such a blessing for fans, I'm more peeved about some TV not being published at all than not having it in the right way. What we enjoy now in tv technology would have been unimaginable when The Avengers was in production.
