On the buses blu ray in future?

Post by ArchiveTvfan43 »

Would love to see a blu ray release of all 3 on the buses films, I would assume the original film elements (negatives still exist) the steptoe and son films could do with a similar restoration.

Would love to see the On The Buses films in a good format. I also thought the films were much better than the series which suffered as it went on far too long.

Steptoe & Son I found the films were not so good as the series - but would still by bluray.

I think the films deserve a bluray release, would be good.

I like the films but I much preferred the series, I'm not sure it ran too long, more that other writers were brought in, and it's never as good as the original writers managed, ( supposedly one of the reasons Robbins left).

It's often the case, same thing happened to "Please Sir!.

Also the films are a lot cruder, to say the least.

One film I'd like to see which hasn't even had a DVD release yet, is "Never Mind The Quality, Feel The Width".

I rather like the second Steptoe film, but the first one… blimey.

The first On the Buses movie has had an HD broadcast so that one at least is ready. Not seen HD versions of the other 2 but I would expect Network or Studio Canal to see the sense in releasing all 3 in one set for an eventual Bluray.
Even with a Bluray recorder not worth capturing as broadcasts are usually cut
