The only extra on the US DVD is a trailer. The film was made by Spitfire Productions and financed and distributed by United Artists. UA is now part of MGM. MGM distributes BoB in the US and almost certainly has the UK rights. The best way to make them release it would be to create a demand. If enough people did... MGM HOME ENTERTAINMENT (EUROPE) LTD 5 Kew Road, Richmond, Surrey, TW9 2PR 020 8939 9300 www.mgmuk.com (www.mgm.com/title_title.do?title_star=BATTLEOF for details of Reg 1 DVD) Another thread mentions the aircraft flying into Marshalls. They did that to clear customs.

I remember seeing the documentary on the making of the film in the hall at my junior school, pre July 1972. The next playtime, the entire playground was full of kids running around arms outstreched going 'taka-taka-taka........' I sometimes wonder if this was what got me into aviation? Geoff.
