Where to purchase the popular Onedin Line videos?

Home video versions of the series have been made available in various versions over the years. For series one, edited versions were made available by BBC Video on VHS in the 1990s. These edited masters saw a re-release in the UK on DVD from Universal Playback in 2003. The Australian (from ABC) and Dutch (from Memphis Belle) DVD versions of series one also derive from these edited versions. In North America, Canadian company BFS Video released the first four episodes uncut on VHS in 2001, with these and the next four episodes arriving on DVD in two double-disc sets two years later.

It wouldn't be until 2007 that all 15 episodes of the first series became available uncut on DVD, in the UK from 2 entertain in a four-disc set.

Series two follows a similar pattern, with edited versions arriving on VHS and DVD in the UK from the same companies listed above. The version from Holland is sourced from the same masters. The Australian version, however, has all 14 episodes uncut on four discs.

Series three through five are available from Holland, and all are reportedly uncut (as of August, 2010, Series 1, 2 and 6 are also available from Memphis Belle; not sure whether these are the edited versions). All episodes up to series six are also available in Germany, with the remainder scheduled for release within the first quarter of 2010.

In summary, the first five series in their uncut and unedited format are only available for home viewing in the form of the 2 entertain series one set, the ABC series two set, and the Dutch sets for series three-five
