Region 1 DVD's by voxpops on 9 March 2004 8:25am
Does anybody know if there is a date for a region one dvd of any of Mike's series. I have all of them on tape but would much rather have them on dvd. And before any of you point it out, yes, I know that I can get a regionless dvd player and order them from abroad. I just don't want to. :-P

Hello voxpops:

I have gone through the same path as you and it appears that there are no Region 1 dvd releases of the DVD titles and it appears that there may not be due to the cost of producing an NTSC version. I purchased a region free DVD player that also converts PAL to NTSC. I am happy and have been watching "Around The World ..." this week with my family. We refuse to buy another tape.

I ended up getting this model from this vendor:


I am satisfied. The PAL to NTSC conversion is great.
