Entirely possible. I've not heard anything officially, but I know it's the company Network use, and it looks like the entire warehouse has been destroyed from the few pictures I've seen. Depends on how Sony manage the problem from here.

You're taking this pretty calmly. For a few moments, I was mildly seething about a possible delay to A Very Peculiar Practice.

Well I'm deeply upset at the thought of it, but there's not much we can do. Hopefully anything will indeed just be delays, rather than cancellations. It looks like the destroyed building was a distribution/storage centre rather than a factory, so hopefully there are other empty warehouses Sony can move into and resume operations before long.

This statement has just been posted on Network's website:

Quote

Due to the civil unrest in London and the resultant fire at the Sony storage depot at Enfield, a large amount of DVD stock has been irretrievably damaged - including a large number of Network titles. As a result stock availability will be limited for the next few weeks until normal service is resumed. This will also affect new titles due to ship over the next few weeks - these will, of necessity, be delayed. When we have more information on stock availability and new release dates we will update accordingly but, in the meantime, your patience is appreciated.

We'd like to thank all those customers who've contacted Network to express their concern at our wellbeing - please be assured that we're not going anywhere.

Any unshipped orders will be refunded straight away and the shop will be open for business again as soon as the stock and distribution situation is sorted out.

The Persuaders! 40th anniversary event on the 10th of September will be completely unaffected by this situation.

Please keep an eye on this website for future updates.

Bastards. The kind of people being affected, those who work so hard digging up the archives to release forgotten gems on DVD.
 
I had a word with him next door. He's gone on about the abuse and that. How when he went for a walk up the farm to see the cat and the pig, he slipped on the dog shit, broke his leg, they put a pin in it and you bit his face. And you're an alcoholic. And my brother lives in the club and he's gonna shoot you.... Angelos Epithemiou- 27th July 2010.

Yes it's a labour of love for most companies producing the more niche titles. This won't help or encourage them.

Well there are some important notes:

Firstly, the destroyed building was a storage and distribution centre, NOT manufacture. 'All' Sony need is to rent some empty warehouse somewhere else, and they're back up and running without any trouble. Things will be slower as - presumably - it'll take time to re-establish automated systems etc, but nevertheless.

Secondly, they hold stock before it's delivered to the likes of HMV, Amazon et al. If you've ordered something from a retailer - and it's in stock - then it should be fine. Pre-orders and those sold out are the titles affected.
