DVD Talk review of 'The Edwardians'

I read Paul Mavis's DVD review of The Edwardians at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=35096 and...

The entire series was taped in color, however all but two of them fell victim to the BBC archive purges that lasted until around 1978 or so. It's a bit surprising that no color copies could be found in any American archive for inclusion, considering that some of the series was shown as part of Masterpiece Theatre.

Well, I though it might be that, Chris (I just wrote about that insane policy in my Dudley Moore/Peter Cook review a couple of weeks back), but the back of the box specifically says all the episodes except Lloyd George were filmed in black and white, so I though I had better not speculate.

I'll add your comment, if you like, to the review. That explanation makes the most sense.

Didn't realize until now that you had replied to my post, so, yes, go ahead and add the comment if you wish.

You seem to have a similar taste in British TV to my own, and you're typically the first to review new BBC Video titles. Ironically, Warner Home Video shipped me the Cook/Moore disc two weeks before its street date, and it arrived the same day as you posted your review, for which you had been provided with a screener. You'd think Warner would know ;-)
