It's getting more and more difficult to distinguish between legal and illegal DVD releases. Take Beat Girl. There have been various DVDs issued over the past few years, mainly in America, and none of them very good quality and almost certainly mastered from a video released back in the 90s.
However, a couple of years ago Orbit released a DVD which had all the hallmarks of being a genuine remastered release. Or was it? I met a representative of Renown Pictures at a film fair, recently, who assured me that this release was not authorised, a point they had just made to Orbit's legal team, and that Renown would be releasing their own, better quality version in 2011.
Buyer beware clearly applies in this case!
