I thought about buying the OFAH to save some shelf space but:

a. I wouldn't save much and

b. more importantly, my complete collection in their individual DVD cases look nice on the shelf!

What are these 'new' BBC box sets I saw in HMV today?

They have a common design in maroon and grey and include OFAH (1-7), OAH, Two Ronnies Complete, Blackadder complete remastered etc.

I haven't been able to find them on t'internet yet.

I think they might be HMV exclusive boxsets.

Ah! That could explain why they've not been seen online anywhere. Good thought.

They might be shop exclusive or limited editon. Strange no ITV ones though. I saw a couple in CEX and That's Entertainment!.

Bit of an update.

I went back to HMV to look. No mention of HMV on the boxes. They are copyright BBC Worldwide with various dates but all the artwork is copyright 2 entertain 2013.

One I noted, OAH I think it was, is BBCDVD3893 but I can't find it through Google.

Even though it doesn't say HMV on the box, I think you'll find they have been made for Distribution in HMV stores only and not through online sellers as of yet.

This video clears up all the speculation about whether those boxsets are exclusive to HMV. At the end of the video it states they are exclusive to HMV.
