Pie in the Sky S5 R1 DVD released

At long last, Series 5 of Pie in the Sky will be released on Region 1 DVD. Amazon US has listed the release date as 2 August 2011 and is currently taking pre-orders. For a long time, all of the first four series of this beloved 90s UK sitcom has been available on Region 1 DVD. Some unknown problem has held up the release of Series 5 on Region 1 DVD, until now.

There is still no news on when Pie in the Sky will be available again on Region 2 DVD. At the moment, a small quantity of the original 5 series box set, and copies of the individual series, are available from Amazon UK, though at ridiculously high prices as they are being sold as collector’s items.

Nicola guest starred in the penultimate episode of Series 5. See our write up of this programme in the Pie in the Sky Guide page.

The Birds (rpt)

This Sunday, 27 March 2010, BBC Radio 7 is repeating the radio drama, The Birds, at 6 pm and again at midnight (GMT). This is a one hour drama which is a closer adaptation to the original short story (of the same name) by Daphne du Maurier than the movie interpretation by Alfred Hitchcock. Presumably, BBC Radio 7 is giving this programme another airing because of the male lead, Neil Dudgeon, who has recently commenced his run as the replacement lead on the long running BBC drama, Midsomer Murders.

Nicola has only a small role in this drama and plays the wife of the male lead. You can read our guide to this program HERE.

There is no geographic restrictions on the BBC iPlayer, so non-UK fans can listen to the show as well. We assume that because of this recent (re)broadcast, the show will be available on the BBC iPlayer for 7 days after the Sunday broadcast.
