I believe that those are BBC/Warner titles, not A&E titles.

I'm taking this clearance information as a good sign that A&E isn't continuing the Thriller or Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) sets?

Eh, screw it, I'll just get them through Amazon UK.

Just a word of warning about Oldies.com; call before you order and make sure the item is in stock.

They often list products as available for order when they're not in stock and never will be.

My last order looked like this:


[LM 47028D] Ultraman - Series 1, Volume 2 (3-DVD) (DVD) $5.95

[SUR 2208D] Blazing Stewardesses (Numbered Limited Edition) (2-DVD) (DVD) $5.95

Shipment Subtotal:
$11.90

Shipping & Handling:
$6.98

Total:
$18.88
So, they sent me "Blazing Stewardesses" (which was something I ordered on a lark) and placed the Ultraman set on backorder. Then they canceled the backorder without notifying me at all.

Worst of all, they charged me $12.93 for "Blazing Stewardesses" - a price that included the entire $6.98 in shipping fee (which was more than the DVD itself).

Short story, long: Call for availability first!
