Tis a Pity,
This review is from: Ghost Stories for Christmas (Expanded 6-Disc Collection Box Set) [DVD] (DVD)
Although I understand that the BFI has to raise some of its money from DVD sales etc (most of the rest being funded by the state i.e. the Department for Culture), I think it's main drive as an organisation is to promote an interest in the history of film and television in the UK. Sadly, if you over-price goods (which in some cases, our licence fees initially funded), you are in danger of creating a product which is unaffordable. Surely that defeats the prime directive? . . .

The Prime Directive? Forgive me, but isn't that from Star Trek? Perhaps you mean the 'primary objective?'

Ta Lenny - I stand corrected - I shall check my sources more carefully in future before I boldly go and make it so . . .

You make a good point. Releasing multiple versions of the same product, adding a little more content each time, is simply exploitative. So many of us have fond recollections of this material, but I'm not prepared to pay this inflated price.
