Welcome to our
Where to purchase the popular Onedin Line videos?
Home video versions of the series have been made available
in various versions over the years. For series one, edited
versions were made available by BBC Video on VHS in the
1990s. These edited masters saw a re-release in the UK on
DVD from Universal Playback in 2003. The Australian (from
ABC) and Dutch (from Memphis Belle) DVD versions of series
one also derive from these edited versions. In North
America, Canadian company BFS Video released the first four
episodes uncut on VHS in 2001, with these and the next four
episodes arriving on DVD in two double-disc sets two years
It wouldn't be until 2007 that all 15 episodes of the first
series became available uncut on DVD, in the UK from 2
entertain in a four-disc set.
Series two follows a similar pattern, with edited versions
arriving on VHS and DVD in the UK from the same companies
listed above. The version from Holland is sourced from the
same masters. The Australian version, however, has all 14
episodes uncut on four discs.
Series three through five are available from Holland, and
all are reportedly uncut (as of August, 2010, Series 1, 2
and 6 are also available from Memphis Belle; not sure
whether these are the edited versions). All episodes up to
series six are also available in Germany, with the remainder
scheduled for release within the first quarter of 2010.
In summary, the first five series in their uncut and
unedited format are only available for home viewing in the
form of the 2 entertain series one set, the ABC series two
set, and the Dutch sets for series three-five
