A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

I missed the epg reminer last week as it is on very early mornings.

Currently showing episode 11 of the first season. Bounty starts in 40 minutes.

I'm hoping this means they have restored the series and there will be a blu-ray release soon. Forces TV is, to put it politely, bitrate constrained. Despite the shtty grainy image it looks like there is a decent video being squeezed too much.

Ffs just release the blu-ray already!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's years overdue...

(that's me when it arrives)

Since it is now streamed on BritBox it would be worth somebody comparing the quality. With the merchandise department of the BBC attempting to cover its losses it shouldn't be long before a BluRay disc set comes out, though I doubt it would be remastered in the same way as - for example - Space 1999 or UFO.

Space 1999 and UFO was shot on 35 mm film, Blake's Seven was shot on 576i videotape so it never going to look that good.
