League of Gentlemen: Not Faulty
I have just received this statement from the BBC press office:
BBC Worldwide has NOT issued any statement confirming that there is a problem with the League of Gentlemen Series 2 DVD. On the contrary, the DVD has gone through rigorous testing procedures which have confirmed the discs are of the highest quality and standard according to the DVD Forum specifications.
It is possible that the small number of complaints received by the BBC Helpline are player-compatibility issues but any problems encountered are not the result of a faulty disc. Any advice issued by the BBC Helpline to consumers (which acts independently of BBC Worldwide) does not qualify as a BBC Worldwide press statement.
BBC Worldwide expects and demands the highest possible standards and quality for all its products.
So is it the disc or not? According to the Beeb it is the fault of the players - we'll reserve judgement until we get more solid evidence either way. In the mean time it may be useful for people to post comments to this news item if they have any problems with the disc on their player. If the disc works fine for you then don't comment here!
