About this deal

Plus, there are several bonus features included which are likely to be of particular interest to fans of the sitcom. In 'The Frog's Legacy' (1987) Del and Rodney seem to have struck it rich when it transpires that one of their mum's gentlemen friends, known as Freddy 'the Frog', died leaving them a fortune in stolen gold bullion. Later on in the week, when Rodders is invited to a shooting weekend, the last thing he needs is for Del to arrive with a sawn-off shotgun. Finally, in 'The Jolly Boys' Outing' (1989) Del, Rodney, Uncle Albert, Trigger (Roger Lloyd-Pack) and Boycie embark on their annual outing to Margate, but end up stranded when their coach explodes.It looks betterer than any extant video master would’ve done but boy I wish they’d gone easier on the DNR. In 'To Hull and Back' (1985) Del (Jason) and Rodney (Lyndhurst) think they've come up trumps when they're offered the chance to travel to Amsterdam and collect some diamonds on behalf of Boycie (John Challis). Would love it if they released these on blu ray these would fly of the shelves as many people have said so BBC dont be plonkers all your life and get these released…luvly jubbly.
So while the exteriors would kinda benefit from the resolution, you can’t do anything about the PAL video. When you purchase through links on our site we may earn a small commission, at no extra cost to you. The five 1980s specials of Only Fools And Horses are due to be released on Blu-ray for the first time. I think (but really want to be wrong) that this Only Fools Blu ray set will be a money making excercise with quality no better than the original VHS or DVD releases, because they will be using the same masters! If they could see us now had a brilliant scene with Del in an office pressing the wrong buttons on a printer.The box set contains the 1985 episode To Hull And Back, 1986's A Royal Flush, 1987 special The Frog's Legacy, Dates - first seen in 1988 and The Jolly Boys' Outing, which was originally transmitted on Christmas day in 1989. com, BBC Studios’ global digital news platform, provides up-to-the-minute international news, in-depth analysis and features to more than 145 million unique browsers each month.
If they have the first generation tapes that were made before editing, that would be an improvement. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. The cut scene that frustrates me the most is the nightclub scene in ‘jolly boys outing’ where the female singer is singing: ‘just the way you are’. It must be in the pipeline as we are talking about the most successful sitcom of all time in the UK. I really cant understand why the BBC wont release these episodes fully uncut – if the reason they wont do it is because of money )it would cost too much) – then that is stupid because only fools fans would be more than happy to pay for an expensive release, they wouldn’t care how much it cost.I’m pretty sure all TV repeats do not have these lines and they are definitely cut from all DVD releases. Uncle Albert takes to the seas once more in ‘To Hull and Back’, Del Boy makes a lasting impression when he joins a clay pigeon shoot in ‘A Royal Flush, the highs and lows of romance are revealed in ‘Dates’, and ‘The Jolly Boys’ Outing’ to Margate sees the entire Peckham faithful get into all sorts of trouble. I have to admit that when you have amongst the best actors in the UK, there arent that many retakes, ive seen a few over the years, but its very rare to see any even when your the live audience.
