Well, we can stop begging ACORN for the rest of this series!
on 8 October 2012
I have just exchanged emails with Acorn Media. I had suspected that since they had not released the final two series of Nanny in the over 4 years since the release of series one, the reason may well be because they do not own the rights. This proved to be the case... which explains their statements that they have "no intention" of releasing the rest of it.
They can't, and never could.
Hence the confusion when series one was first released: The packaging didn't specify that it was series one only, because Acorn knew that they were NOT going to release the rest of it. And of course they didn't want the customers to know that because some may have been dissuaded from the purchase of series one if they knew going in that they would probably never have access to the rest of it!
This series is so very marvelous, I am happy to have even series one. But, I do rather resent all the time that I have spent going back and forth to Acorn to request it,and the time spent googling it every few weeks to find out if the rest had been released!:o)
The person at Acorn Media was very accommodating, and also stated that Acorn has no knowledge of who does own the rights to the rest of the series. Hmmm...
I have written to Network DVD and begged them to find out who owns the rights and to PLEASE try to purchase and release the rest of this fine tv show. After all, they seem to be distributing everything else ~ much of it far, far inferior to Nanny. I hope that many of you will do the same.
