The coming months will see some exciting new releases from BBC Video, with two double tapes and yet more recolourisation on the way..
Continuing the impressive work seen on The Daemons and this month’s Terror of the Autons, July will see the release of the Season Seven classic The Silurians. The release will be preceded by another double VHS release as Nicholas Courtney provides linking narration for The Invasion, episodes 1 and 4 being missing from the BBC archive.
Per DWM 199
May: Vengeance on Varos
June: The Keeper of Traken and The Invasion
July: The Silurians
August: The Curse of Peladon
September: The Chase and Remembrance of the Daleks
October/November: Based on a DWM poll
The double VHS releases will be priced £16.99 and their level of success is said to be a determining factor in the priority the BBC gives to future double releases.
Currently scheduled for release without a set date is said to be Trial of a Timelord.
