Shoestring - Series 1 - Outstanding! Even better than I remember first time around,
This review is from: Shoestring - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
After recently adding this to my Amazon Wish List I was fortunate enough to then be given the DVD as a birthday gift.
I was hoping that the series was as good as I remembered the first time around in 1979. After eagerly watching all the episodes across a period of a few weeks I am pleased to report that it is even better than I remembered. Shoestring is some of the very best best television viewing I have enjoyed in recent years. The DVD has been put together very nicely and for 30 year old films, the picture quality is, in the main, very good indeed. I am extremely pleased.
If you haven't bought Shoestring series one yet, then buy it now. I'm sure you wont be disappointed!
I immediately wanted to purchase Shoestring Series 2, however I discovered that it has not yet been released. I contacted the bbcshop and they directed me to 2Entertain who acquire and market many BBC television programmes, including series one of Shoestring.
2Entertain replied advising that they have no immediate plans to release series 2, but they said if they received enough interest the release of series two may be considered: "....as each quarter we review public enquiries and often revisit titles which are frequently requested."
If you're eagerly anticipating being able to buy Shoestring series 2 it may be a great idea to send 2Entertain a note expressing your interest!

Yes; thanks for the email address. I have just sent them one too saying that I really hope they will consider releasing series two as I think there would be quite a bit of interest.
