If the recent ITV releases are anything to go by, this will be new packaging but exactly the same discs as before.

At least the packaging wont have an image of the much nicer original Carlton packaging on the back...

Just about sums up ITV really. They must know that new HD restorations are on the way so why not wait until they can put those on dvd rather than reissue 15 year old discs

I guess they're appealing to a different market entirely, one that wont really care if a better copy is available (and in fairness the Carlton SD masters are very good indeed for what they are). A more casual market perhaps, gift buyers and the like. I've seen UFO, Stingray and Captain Scarlet on the shelves at Sainsburys recently, so it must work.

And lets face it the cost of the repackage is probably a couple of days of a graphic designer's time. The cost of authoring brand new DVDs based on newly available masters is going to be orders of magnitude higher.

To be fair, the new packaging for the Carlton Stingray and Scarlet releases is pretty sexy, not to mention space saving.

But surely anyone interested has had 15 years to pick them up. Are people fickle enough to buy them just because it's got new packaging?

The UFO dvd's were state of the art when they came out but side by side against the Blurays the (Australian) dvd's look awful yet ITV have apparently reissued those too not forgetting some odd people who've stuck with the dvd's because the grading is a bit better. Who cares about the huge increase in quality anyway

It is indeed a remaster, performed by BBC Resources in the early 2000s. It was a very good remaster too, but it was an SD remaster.

The disc images will be exactly the same as the ones on every release since then, we all presume.

It does make me laugh how ITV plaster the words "collector's edition" on literally every Anderson boxset. If they're selling them at Sainsburys, they must be churning them out in the tens of thousands.

So either its the remastered version we already have or perhaps its an SD version of the upcoming Blurays.
My guess is the former.
