    Interesting personal update on the season 20 picture instability. My 4k panasonic dp-ub450 has just had a new firmware update for stability. It has reduced the excesses of the instability but you can still see it fighting against it. It does feel a better viewing experience now. As this is my second firmware update since the issue I thought I would share it here as this is the most up to date chat and some are concerned the issue may continue with this set. Hopefully this my reassure that even if the bbc cannot solve the issue our devices may eventually be able to.

    So given that Stef Coburn seems to have no intention to negotiate reasonably in regards to An Unearthly Child I think we may have to get used to the idea that they do season 1 without the first 4 eps. Very annoying but I would rather only have the first 4 eps missing from the collection than the whole of season 1.

      Season 1 probably won’t be out til 2027 so things might change by then. I hope they leave an empty disc tray for it though. So either we can pop our dvd version in or there is a space if it eventually gets a separate Blu-ray release.

      Some seem to think it’s okay under videogram rights.

      It all could depend on whether or not the physical media rights are perpetual or not. There is a bit of a question mark over that. Steve Roberts who used to work on the range seems to think so but Richard bignell doesn’t seem as sure. It’s a bit of a question mark at present so it’s hard to say whether or not it’s the case.

      It seems unlikely stef and the bbc will agree on terms for starters the bbc have offered him the maximum amount legally £20k. Secondly stef wants among other things rights to the tardis and his father’s pilot script for a tv show the bbc rejected back in 1976 made into a tv show. If they agreed to that it would cost millions and also could cause a precedent that other estates could make similar demands. Something like this could take years to sort out. Even if they do agree stef’s hatred for the bbc doctor who and its fans makes me think he will change terms just to be difficult and delay things as much as possible. Think our best bet to negotiate with the person that takes over the estate from him when he passes. He claims he’s leaving it to the Russian federation (yes really) which I doubt but even if that was the case I can’t see any way that putin would be that bothered about a British tv show that had an extremely small audience there let alone the bbc putting out a blu ray of it in a couple of places around the world.

      I suspect when they go round to start working on season 1 they will have chats with lawyers to see what they can and can’t do. I suspect regardless of whatever they can do they will have a space for an unearthly child

      I can’t see an S1 The Collection set being released without the very first story included – I really can’t.

      No idea what the solution is though to move past this

      I always thought that it was Susan who made up the name TARDIS?

      I was once told by a Networkonair employee that Blu-ray rights required renegotiation as they are different to dvd rights. Hence why some of their popular releases never made the transition to Blu-ray despite being restored and ready to go. Not sure how true that is or if it applies in this case

      I can believe that to be honest, as the Beginning Box set does still appear to be in print. The obvious way around would surely be to just re-release the DVD exactly as it is now in any future Season 1 box set just with a new label on the disc. (The Steelbook release of The Daleks in colour springs to mind).

    I used to buy these sets from Zoom. They then became The Entertainment Store. Now The Entertainment Store seem to have disappeared from eBay, Amazon and elsewhere online. Anyone know what’s happened to it?

      Zoom got taken over but the ones that did take over was pretty bad at prices and sending through things so it closed

      A company called Patriot Films (who?) bought out Zoom when Universal dropped out of the UK market. It was mishandled all round, and I think we all still miss the old Zoom.

      The Entertainment Store (not connected to Zoom or Patriot) are showing as “on holiday” on my ebay pages, until 3rd March. So it’s not necessarily bad news, and there are a lot of warehouse moves going on at the moment.

      Ah that’s it. patriot films. Couldn’t for the life of me remember who it was that took it over. It was so badly mishandled. I ordered something to try them. It was supposedly sent but I never received anything. Tried their email helpline repeatedly with no response. Tried contacting their socials and they blocked me. Eventually I had to claim my money back through PayPal.

      Thanks everyone. Hopefully it is just a warehouse move as RexF suggests as I find The Entertainment Store great for physical media releases. Often get titles no longer available in other stores. I am concerned though as on company house the man who ran the eBay arm of the company has resigned. Gordon the name Zoom was taken over and they did a pretty bad job but the Zoom staff and stock moved over to The Entertainment Store I believe when Warner took over Universals physical media releases. That’s what I meant really, just got a bit mixed up.
