I am currently trying to discover who at the BBC actually owns the dvd rights to "Oliver Twist". I seem to be directed to one department after another but this is not unusual as the BBC is a large organisation.
I am going to use the recently released "Anna Karenina" (BBC 1961) as a point of reference since the BBC were quite happy to release this onto dvd once it had been rediscovered. It was originally thought lost. There was no online petition to back up this production so the BBC are hoping for reasonable sales. However, there is support for "Oliver Twist" so they should not be able to make any excuses for not releasing it.
I am also trying to gather a good deal more support via facebook, but I will be requiring help with this because I am not at all sure what to do to promote the campaign once I get onto it.
I wish all those who have signed my online petition a very happy christmas and new year.
