I don't know if this has been mentioned, the DVDs have been reissued in Australia. The DVD's are in Amray boxes and not the UK digipaks.

does anyone remember if this was filmed on film or on video?

Wondering if there's a chance for Blu-Ray.

I noticed that the 1996 Dr Who movie is being released on Blu-Ray shortly.

I believe the series was shot on film for the location work and the visual effects, and video for the studio, as was the norm for BBC shows of the period.

I really can't see a Blu-ray release forthcoming from the BBC. They can't even release the series on DVD in the US.

pity. I figured that was the case.

Did any of the Blake's 7 DVDs get the same remastering that the Who DVDs got?

They were, but not to the same extent as the Who DVDs. From a packaging point of view, the Australian ones looks to be the best so far. Leaps and bounds ahead of the UK digipaks which I have always hated. The series was also available in The Netherlands, but I'm not sure what these are like, although some of the fans seem to favour this release.
