Please...Please bring back the 1970s and 1980s TV Kids Classics,
This review is from: Grange Hill : Complete BBC Series 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
I am pleased that the BBC have released Doctor Who (especially the Jon Pertwee and Tom Baker eras), but I would also like the BBC re-issue and release the first twelve series (1978 to 1989 along with the 1981 and 1985 Christmas Specials, and the 1988 Documentary - Behind the Scenes 'Grange Hill' as a special feature) of Grange Hill from Tucker Jenkins, Trisha Yates, Alan Humphries, Benny Green and Justin Bennett first day at Grange Hill to Series 12 with Grange Hill waving goodbye to Ziggy Greaves, Gonch Gardiner, Vince Savage, Helen Kelly, legendary and 'dearly departed' teenaged rebel Danny Kendall and the most legendary 'toupee' and 'bowtie' wearing French Teacher of all time Mr Maurice Bronson played excellent with great passion by the legendary Star Wars and Doctor Who actor Michael Sheard.
I hope the BBC brings out the 'Golden Age of Grange Hill' on DVD, and introduce us to the legends, such as as legendary Head Misteress Mrs Bridget McCluskey, Mr Tony Mitchell, Mr Jeff 'Bullet' Baxter, Mr Richard Keating, Mr Graham Sutcliffe, Miss Terri Mooney, Mr Stuart 'Hoppy' Hopwood, Mr Bill 'Scruffy' McGuffy, Mr Nick Smart, Mr Craig McKenzie, Miss Gilly Booth, Mrs Liz Reegan, Mr Peter Robson, Mr Peter King, School Caretaker Mr Eric Griffiths, Zammo McGuire, Roland Browning, Faye Lucas, Annette Fireman, Johan Jones, Kevin Baylon, Julie Merchant, Janet StClair, Cheryl and Louise Webb, Jackie and Robbie Wright, Paul 'Hollo' Holloway, Trevor Cleaver, Cally Donnington, Veronica 'Ronnie' Burtles, Fiona Bishop, Georgina Hayes, Ant Jones, Julia Glover, Freddie and Chrissy Mainwaring, Laura Reegan, Matthew Pearson, Terrance 'Tegs' Radcliffe, Justine Dean, and the two in-'famous' bullies who made every teacher and pubils lives a misery and an absolute nightmare at Grange Hill Norman 'Gripper' Stebson and Imelda Davis, and many more (got character's names from Wikipedia). Please, please release this classic 1970s and 1980s legendary drama for the young at heart and for everyone who remembers the 1986 Anti-Drug song 'Just Say No'.

Mr G Turner says:
I agree Grange Hill went down hill when Michael Sheard's legendary character 'Mr Bronson' left in 1989. I stopped watching it, and when I heard that the actress who played Mrs McCluskey left it was the death nail for the series. I am on-line protest demanding the BBC to release these great 12 series of Grange Hill and also release a stand alone separete Special Edition DVD of 'The Revenge of the Cybermen' with the same CGI imaging and vocial talent of Nicholas Briggs to voice the Cybermen along with the original verison as they did with the Day of the Daleks.
