The first of 3 seasons is now available in Region 2
This was indeed an excellent series, and I see no reason why we in the States are not able to have region one dvds available to us, since we were allowed to fall in love with it on TV here. I saw it years ago, not on PBS, but on A&E, back when reality shows weren't all they did.
Get yourself an inexpensive Phillips (or other) DVD player from Amazon.com, and search either on the site (in their message board for that player) or on-line for the hack code. All you'll have to do when the player arrives is open the DVD tray and press whatever numbers the hack requires on your remote control, and you'll have a region 2 player. Buy "Nanny" region 2 from Amazon.co.uk and enjoy. This series deserves a wide audience of Brit TV lovers, and it's not as if you were pirating it. Enjoy. Hopefully series 2 will be out, soon.
