Great content, dire quality,
This review is from: The Complete Flumps [DVD] (DVD)
This is a DVD for goodness sake. What's the point in cutting a DVD unless the quality is up to scratch? The colours are washed out. The image shakes (someone in production must have been drunk). I couldn't watch more than a few minutes before taking the wretched thing back. What a tragedy and a blatant money making exercise. The production company should be ashamed.

I think this is rather unfair. It's safe to say even in the 1980s the prints of "The Flumps" shown on BBC1 looked decidely washed-out, and FAR more scratched to death than what's on the DVD. The versions on this disc look far crisper and have far better (i.e. more) colour than what was seen on BBC1 in the '80s. I'm sure they didn't look that different in 1976 either. Maybe some people are remembering watching the series on a DeccaColour valve set in 1976 which had the Colour knob turned up to maximum, making everything glow with unreal colour? Because really, unless that's what people are expecting, I don't see how the picture quality on this disc can be a disappointment at all.
