Reviews

Episodes 1-6 of the long running Scottish drama series.
Take The High Road was one of the longest running shows on UK television. For over 22 years and more than 1,500 episodes Take The High Road delighted viewers all over Britain as this landmark Scottish Television drama followed the lives of the inhabitants of Glendorrach, a beautiful village in the scenic Scottish countryside. Following the trials and tribulations of the people who live and work on the estate, Take The High Road was shot on location in the village of Luss, on the banks of the picturesque Loch Lomond, northwest of Glasgow.
Now, for the first time on DVD, you can relive the highs and lows, the friendships and all the dramas as they unfold in this timeless classic.
Volume 1 includes episodes 1-6 of Take the High Road.

I loved watching tthr on tv and was very sorry when it was axed.
My daughter was very young when it was shown on the tv,we travelled to Scotland quite a it as my hubby is Scottish and we saw tthr being filmed and met most of the cast.
I was thrilled when I saw it was on DVD and purchased it.The quality isn't good especially the picture quality but having loved the series that much I contacted Scottish tv to see if they were bringing more episodes out on DVD,I was told a very definite NO, they told me I could watch it on YouTube which isn't what I wanted.
They have obviously changed their minds as they have brought additional disc's..
I have purchased them as they bring back happy memories but. The quality needs to be improved.

this was a great show. I had only seen a few episodes as I was working full time when it was shown on ABC TV. I am looking forward to see more as I know the area quite well having being brought up in Glasgow. I want to see as much as possible bearing in mind I am now 80.

I used to watch this way back in the 80s and longed for it to be released, but knew somehow it would be years before that were to happen. Soaps like this should be OWNED by us the viewers who helped make these shows the classics that they are. Neighbours have started releasing their early episodes as have Emmerdale. But will the trend continue? Could we soon be buying Seasons of Home and Away or Coronation Street....how about every episode of Brookside or Crossroads! Anyway, enjoy again this timeless piece of soap history. Only downside to this....the cost. Surely would've been better to present these releases as season by season boxsets. I give this release 4/5 stars because of the companies greed in the cost.....but the stars are really for the fact that we can keep forever those great soap moments.

STV really must be desperate or greedy or both! Six half hour episodes over two discs at that price!! Why bother insulting the public! The show was an afternoon soap in ten of the 14 ITV regions when it was screened years ago. Only four regions in Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Border region had a peak time transmission for the show.
Would you really want 100s and 100s of 3 episode discs when STV have THE WHOLE SERIES on youtube anyway!
STV you have no business sense at all. You deprive your viewers of decent British drama and fob your audience off with old US shows or cheap Australian imports which have been shown on cable already. You then decide to release much of your material on Youtube so it is FREE for anyone to watch. Why bother with this dvd? One of their Youtube channels where you can see Take The High Road is STVDramas.
The sooner STV disappears and the licence for the two Channel 3 regions in Scotland is given to somebody else, the better!

As a series itself, STV should be proud of their history and their previous commitment to decent local programming. Take The High Road ran for years and was only taken off the ITV network by London based executives. Eventually all ITV regions resumed the series at their own pace anyway. The sad fact was that STV had had to cut down to one episode a week following it's removal from the network

Watch the whole lot in all it's glory on Youtube.
