BBC confirm their 2000 line-up
BBC Worldwide have confirmed the details for a number of discs due out between now and the end of the year.
The Tom Baker starring Doctor Who: The Robots Of Death is due on 9 October retailing at £19.99. The DVD will feature a commentary by the writer, 10 minutes of shots and footage of test runs on the models used in the episode, an image stills gallery, production notes and the production team's floor plan. More Doctor Who discs are scheduled including Spearhead from Space on 4 December and Remembrance of the Daleks in January.
Sean Bean stars in Bravo Two Zero which is due on 16 October. The disc will feature never-before-seen footage of the principal actors involved in special training with the South African SAS and a twenty minute interview with Andy McNab. The disc will retail for £19.99.
Also on 16 October, Life of Birds looks set to be a stunning release. Spread over three dual-layer discs, the total running time is 530 minutes - this includes 40 minutes of previously unseen footage. Expect this one to cost £34.99.
Pride and Prejudice will feature a making-of documentary and will retail for £29.99 when it's released on 23 October. Given the price, I assume it is set to be a two-disc release.
Blackadder: Series 2 is scheduled for 6 November retailing at £19.99 with Blackadder: Series 3 following on 4 December at the same price.
Only Fools and Horses: The Jolly Boys' Outing (£19.99) is also scheduled for release on 6 November and sees the Trotters and co pay a visit to Margate.
