Region 2 DVD Release Date
5 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In reply to an earlier review Network DVD are going to release this on DVD on the 1st November 2010.

I remember seeing this TV movie on ITV one Christmas in the mid 1970s and thought it was fairly reasonable ITC fare. I have to agree with another reviewer that it was not difficult to work out who the culprit was, I can even remember the plot pretty well all these years later. I am looking forward to getting the DVD to see what I think of it some 35 years later. Network are initially releasing 'The Firechasers' as a "web site exclusive" so it won't be available at online stores like Amazon for a while yet.
