I really hope BBC release a blu ray of this, its really beautifully shot and deserves to be seen in full HD

I second this. It looks stunning on BBC HD and it'd be a real shame not to put out a Blu-ray version.

Better cover art than this DVD would be welcomed too!

I contacted the BBC who told me the following:

The majority of BBC programmes are acquired by 2entertain for DVD exploitation. Those titles not acquired by 2entertain remain with BBC Archive who may license the rights to other interested parties in due course. May I therefore suggest you contact the 2entertain enquiry line for further information.

So I contacted 2Entertain who replied today with this:

Thank you for your recent communication regarding the availability of the below programme.

Unfortunately we at 2entertain do not own the rights to this programme so I am afraid we have no plans to release it. The Rights are held by Fremantle Home Entertainment, if you contact them directly they should be able to assist with your enquiry.

So today I have written to Freemantle and will post back what they say

Well done I. C. Graves on your enquiries, I'll be interested to hear what Fremantle say. I also hope it will be released on Blu-ray; the cinematography and visuals are so stunning even on iPlayer in HD (which has a much lower bit-rate than Blu-ray of course).

Well there wont be a bluray release :(
I recieved the following email today from freemantle;

Dear Ian,

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately there will not be a Blu-ray release. When we assessed the viability of this title on Blu-ray, unfortunately the sales potential is too low to warrant a Blu-ray production. We are disappointed by this, however we have to take market forces in to consideration.

Kind regards,
