I have NTNON on VHS, Not The Nine O'Clock News - The Gorilla Kinda Lingers [VHS] [1979].
It really is the best, very best of the whole series. (That's if you still have a VHS player?). Don't know why it isn't available on DVD? It's great!!!!!

I vote for Dear John but this is never going to happen as the tapes were destroyed due to copyright or some such argument.

Shame.

Of stuff not mentioned so far, COMPLETE series/seasons of:
U.K.: The Goodies; Misleading Cases (in fact, even to see either of those on TV again appears to be impossible - no doubt some vandal decided to wipe the latter, like Not Only But Also)
U.S.: Batman; The Phil Silvers Show (it's a-coming...); Empty Nest; The Geena Davis Show
I hadn't realised that Mark Steel lectures had been on TV, so my thanks to that person for the information, too.

"Don't Forget to Write" - a brilliant comedy starry George Cole and Gwen Watford. Never been repeated or issued but it does still exist on tape at the BBC.

Arthur Haynes - one of my all time favourites; 'Mash'; The Golden Girls; The Two Ronnies. Today's 'comedians' are pale ghosts of the past masters. Bad language and as near to slanderous remarks as they can get seem to be hallmarks of most of the current lot.

P. Stanton says:
All of those (bar Arthur Haynes, probably) are already out on DVD, Mr. Walker.

here's an obscure one - anyone remember ITV series in 60's called "Mrs Thursday"
"Trivia:Lord Ted Willis originally conceived Mrs Thursday as a one season retirement swan song for Kathleen Harrison, but the show became one of the top rated of 1966 leading to two more seasons and Kathleen Harrison herself being kept busy for the next decade."
probably dated horribly but i remember her embarrassingly funny "spoonerisms" - eg gossipping about a neighbour who was going into hospital for a "hysterical rectum"

spike milligan's Q series. The BBC have probably taped over these classics. I had heard they had refused to release them.

Dear John was never destroyed, i have it on original video myself

Series one has been released on dvd and is available from amazon
and other retailers have a complete dvd boxset

A Long Overdue release though :)

There are two channel four sitcoms that as far as I can work out have never been released

The Big One (starring Sandi Toksvig and Mike McShane) only one series made but it was brilliant and Chelmsford 123 with Jimmy Mulville and Rory McGrath.

These are long overdue for DVD release.

I `d love to see Citizen James and the remaining Episode of Taxi starrin g Sid james released from the BBC archives. All episodes of Citizen James still exist in their Library, and only one of the 13 made Taxi episodes still exists.

I can't remember Citizen James, so looked it up, all I got was this:
George And The Dragon [DVD], it's a tv series, 11 hours of episodes it says, now I vaguely remember this one, Sid James as a servant, John Le Mesiuer as the posh boss, and Peggy Mount as the dragon? Just interesting to see this available.
