Double Deckers now out on DVD
« on: September 12, 2010, 02:41:54 AM »
I don't know if this has been mentioned, or if this is the right place to post this exactly, but I noticed recently that Here Come The Double Deckers, which starred Gillian Bailley (Callie in Follyfoot) is now out on DVD.

In an interview a little while ago, Gillian had said it would be hard to release because of copyright money owing for airpplay. guess it was sorted out.

For instance, at Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003WUXIYK/ref=s9_newr_gw_ir01?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1SVNY8HZV1GXNAVFZ986&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128533&pf_rd_i=468294

Price has dropped I see.

I think it has been mentioned recently Rusty but I can't remember where now so it's good you've started a new thread so it won't get lost among other posts.  :)

It's not a show I particularly liked or watched myself. I thought the attempt at international mix to appeal to all and sundry failed to gell properly. Yet I understand it was a favourite for others. I've seen enough of it on youtube to be satisfied. For me, the only good thing in it was Gillian Bailley in any case. You notice in the opening sequence it appears she's the only one who can really dance.

Yes Gillian Bailley looked lively, confident, energetic -very much used to the stage and acting  :)
As a kid, I used to love the double deckers!  :)
