Pre-2002 Top Gear releases?

Hey everyone,

I've been on a bit of an older Top Gear kick lately. I've been watching the often poor quality episodes I've found online, recorded from VHS and the like. My collection is far from complete.

My question is, does anyone know if there are plans for BBC to release the older episodes (prior to the 2002 refresh) on DVD or even online? I think there would be quite the audience for it. If not, I wonder why they wouldn't.

Thanks

I extremely doubt there will ever be an official release of pre-reboot Top Gear episodes. There's just not enough demand to justify the costs.

Best I can find is stuff like this:

Thanks for the reply and the link. I can only hope someone living in the UK may have all these episodes recorded on old tapes, and one day could upload and share them, so they aren't lost in time forever!
