Men of The World - please release it on DVD!

Dear BBC We respectfully request that you release a DVD of the 1994 series situation comedy 'Men of The World', starring David Threlfall ('Shameless', 'What Remains' numerous theatre productions and films) and John Simm ('Crime & Punishment', 'The Lakes', 'State of Play', 'Exile', 'Sex Traffic', 'Life on Mars', 'Mad Dogs', 'The Village' and the upcoming 'Prey'...). Not only are both actors widely acclaimed, each with their own enthusiastic fanbase, but the series, written by Daniel Peacock ( The Young Ones, Little Armadillos, Only Fools and Horses, Robin of Sherwood, The Bill, Doctor Who, Casualty, One Foot in the Grave...) was a genuine comedy and a great example of two of our finest actors in their early years. Lenny Smart (Threlfall) and Kendle Bains (Simm) are flatmates and work together as travel agents in Manchester. Thirtysomething Lenny attempts, with the help of old friend Gilby (Peacock), to turn sensitive 23-year-old Kendle into a "real man". Please help a new generation who have never had the chance to see this classic learn what great comedy timing is. And it has a really catchy theme tune, too! Thank you for your consideration.
