I keep on feeding in the same titles every month or two, just to see if the BBC have finally decided to put them out in some format or other, but never any joy. Maybe if we can get a checklist going of the titles we'd all like to see it might motivate them to actually do it - guaranteed sales, after all. Personally I'm rooting for a release of Doomwatch on DVD, and a reissue of their MR James stories (the old ones, not the new 'I'm just pinching another man's title and kudos to peddle my own sub-standard ghost story' one); and I'd dearly love the radio shows Hello Cheeky and Tales of the Mausoleum Club to get a CD airing. Anyone else got favourites they're waiting for?

"Reaching for the Skies" - the Aviation documentary series from the late 1980's

"The Power & the Glory" - a motor racing documentary series from the early 1990's

"Local Heroes" - the science / history series with Adam Hart Davis

Full, complete collection of "Keith Floyd" cookery shows... I've seen some on Amazon already, but some reviews say they haven't done a very good job of it + a few series of his still not available.

"Jeremy Clarkson's Extreme Machines" + "Jeremy Clarkson's Motorworld....... there's already The Jeremy Clarkson Collection [DVD] on Amazon with them on, but bits are missed out.

Jimmy Nail's 'Spender'. While they're at it they may as well release 'Crocodile Shoes' too.

Eagle of the Ninth, and the Christopher Lee readings of M R James' ghost stories. Second Verdict. And a blu ray of Edge of Darkness, and to hell with that ghastly remake!

The excellent football series Match of the 70s narrated by Dennis Waterman. Where the hell has this superb series gone. Great football, interviews and music from a great era for English football. Come on BBC or whoever is responsible, get this out on DVD.

I'd love to see Codename Icarus a thriller series from the early 80's which starred Philip Locke, also the old comedy series Lame Ducks. Plus the complete series of A Ghost Story For Christmas would be great. Fingers crossed.
