Network have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Persuaders!: The Complete Series (Special Edition) for 18th September 2006 priced at £59.99. Originally broadcast on ITV1 between 1970 and 1971 and filmed on location at Pinewood and exotic places like Monaco, THE PERSUADERS! stars Hollywood legend Tony Curtis and Roger Moore as the mismatched playboys with an eye for the ladies and a knack for landing themselves in compromising situations. The show was a hit in the UK and capitalised on Curtis’ impressively diverse film career and the enormous success of Roger Moore's near decade-long run in THE SAINT. The show also features many fine performances from high calibre special guests including Joan Collins, Denholm Elliot, Susan George, Patrick Troughton, Bernard Lee, Ian Hendry and Terry Thomas.
