Is there any particular reason why the only Harry Enfield DVD available is the show he did on Sky? I'd like to rewatch Harry Enfield and Chums and I've never seen Harry Enfield's Television Programme

Because BBC Worldwide/2entertain charge astronomic fees to other companies for programmes they own, and unless there's a big marketable opportunity, don't tend to care too much about archive programming themselves.

Sky, meanwhile, are happy to make money.

However, I wouldn't be surprised to see the shows released within the next couple of years. We're just into the 20th anniversary of HETP, so there's plenty of market there to take advantage of if they want to.

I would love the to release them on DVD. I have all my Dad's old ones on video and still watch them. But they're getting a little old.

I can't believe neither of the series have been released on DVD! Harry Enfield's Television Programme and Harry Enfield and Chums were arguably two of the most successful British sketch shows of all time. They were going to release a box-set of the latter in 2007 but it was cancelled. I've hear they might be doing one called 'The Harry Enfield and Chums Television Programme: The Collection' featuring both series of each. Does anybody know if this is true?

Not to rule it out, as DVD companies are understandably cagey about upcoming releases, but I've not heard anything about such a release, certainly not by that name. There have been rumours of a box set containing both series for a few years now, but evidently none have come to fruition so I can only assume to be fans' wishful thinking.

It is nevertheless utterly bizarre that neither show has seen the legitimate light of day.

I think I read about that release on Wikipedia a while ago. It's probably just a load of rubbish though, shame really...

Oh I'm excited!

Just been mindlessly browsing Amazon as you do and there it was.

At long last, Harry Enfield And Chums is coming to DVD.

March 2013.

It's a collection of all the series plus Christmas special and other extras.

Do you reckon Harry Enfield's Television Programme will see a DVD release?
