Because the sixth disc didn't exist last time round!

They only originally intended to produce five discs based around the official Ghost Story for Christmas series, but when last year's box became one of their all-time best sellers, it clearly made sense to do a follow-up.

But since this sixth disc is available either separately (for those who already have the original box) or as part of a new six-disc box, I'm slightly baffled as to why you think this is a "rip off". How else could they have handled it?

I complained on here due to lack of knowledge. As someone else said it seemed like re-releasing an album with a couple of extra tracks to entice more people when the real fans had bought it previously.

I'd already pre-ordered the extra disc not realizing it was the extra disc if that makes any sense. :loco:

Where's the missing Ghost Stories for Christmas with Christopher Lee episode by the way? :)

There's a rights issue with that particular episode - I don't know the fine details, but the fact that it's not included in the Australian release either speaks volumes.

That's a shame.

I love that series, i still have the episode taped from tv.

I'll get the 6 Disc edition of it - I'm glad I held off the 5

An Amazon seller has the new BFI book up at 1p brand new plus postage.

Thats 2.81 in total. Bargain for a book released only two weeks ago.

Naturally i had to order a copy.

If anyone has a FOPP near them, they will be selling Classic Ghost Stories for 12, when it's released. They will also have the new expanded Ghost Stories For Christmas set for 35.

They're also doing Dead Of Night and Robin Redbreast from the BFI for 12 each.

These are all cheaper than I've seen them online. Sadly I don't have a FOPP near me. :( Hopefully I'll be in London some time after their release, as I was planning to miss a few of the BFI's DVD TV releases, as they're putting out too much genre stuff for me to keep up with, thanks to this Gothic season. These prices are more palatable than I've seen online. Hopefully in November they'll do the BFI release of Supernatural at a similar price, as it's going for over 16 at the moment on Amazon :(.

Noticed that the BFI recently screened Ray Boulting's Twisted Nerve. Unfortunately I was away, or I would have gone.

Has there been any sniff of them releasing a BR of it? Had a google, but to no avail.
