  1. The DVD release date was pushed back two weeks to Tuesday, April 21st- ARRGH! Guess I’ll have to record the PBS broadcast to tide me over for two weeks!

  2. These are wonderful and much wanted extras, Richard. I would like to thank whoever was responsible for this set for caring about the work and the fans.
