I'll second that! Really want to get this on DVD.
I really wanted to get this on DVD too, so I put it in the suggestion box of replaydvd. This is the email I recieved-
I thought I'd just give you some feedback on Chelmsford 123.
I think that is an excellent choice and it's one that I would have done already but there is a problem. There is apparently a dispute between the writers Jimmy Mulville and Rory McGrath and as a result it is not possible to obtain the clearances needed for a release. Indeed, a DVD release was scheduled about four years ago (I forget who the DVD publisher was going to be) and it even got so far as to be listed as a pre-order on Amazon and Play etc but this problem proved to be insurmountable and it was pulled.
Sadly, that means a release by Replay or anyone else remains impossible unless the writers end their dispute.
So it appears someone will have to lock them in a room together and force them to resolve their differences if this is to see the light of day. Or alternatively wait 50 years or however long it is until the copyright expires.
