This is series two of three of Old Country produced by my company Lacewing Productions (the first two series) which became The Production Unit (the last series). They were only ever shown on Channel 4. Channel 4 had the rights to show the programmes twice but I am not sure if they ever showed them a second time.
None of this material has been used for anything else and a bit like The Lost Episodes the master tapes I sent to Channel 4 got lost until they turned up at the BFI.
I about a year ago talked firstly to Channel 4 about these and they informed me the programmes had been lodged at the BFI.
I then spoke to the BFI who also agreed to transfer the 1 inch C format tapes for me to high quality avi files from which the DVDs are being be made.
These will only be available from me and I do not intend putting them out for general sale in places such as garden centers and book shops.
