Just had it from the horse's mouth at the Cinema Ritrovato Festival in Bologna last week that it will be AT LEAST December 2010 before these DVDs are released. The contract for them was finally signed last Friday by Bologna, the BFI and Lobster and it is only now that they can begin production. I understand, too, that new footage has been found in many cases, so many of the films will be re- restored before they are transferred to DVD.

We will be showing these films at the "Charlie in the Heartland" conference in October 2010 and hope to be promoting them for imminent release at that time. We'll see.
