    Network announced last year that the first series of this 1959 television series starring John Paul would be released on DVD in April, 2016, but they've taken the title off their forthcoming catalogue now. So it looks like they've cancelled the release.

    Here's a message from Network...

    We appreciate that some of you are disappointed, as we are, about the delays to some of the new ITV titles that we announced on our website. Just to keep you in the picture, the deeper into the archive we go the more complex the rights issues surrounding them can be. Some are easier than others to clear but if documentation is scarce, incomplete or sometimes missing altogether a full assessment has to be done from scratch, a time-consuming process wholly dependant on a multitude of factors.

    The good news is that that vast majority of titles will ultimately get an airing and hopefully before the end of the year. We're just not in a position to name the day at this precise moment. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more ourselves, though. We do really appreciate your patience and look forward to what's ahead.

    Thanks for uploading the message, Ian. I just hope they don't cancel No Time For Tears, due to be released tomorrow, or The Wonder Kid, due to be released on April 18th, although those two are cinema films and not ITV series, so they should appear okay.
