Jump to: navigation, search

2point4 children originally aired from 1991 to 1999 on BBC 1 over 56 episodes, including five Christmas specials. It created by Andrew Marshall who wrote all episodes with the exception of three episodes from Series 7 which were written by Paul Alexander & Simon Braithwaite and Paul Smith. The show was originally directed and produced by Richard Boden, but the later series were directed by Nick Wood, Dewi Humphries and produced by Andrew Marshall.

A VHS release was made of the first three episodes of series one in 1996. Eureka Video began releasing the series on DVD, but insufficient sales meant only the first three series were released; no other plans have been made to release the remainder. 2Entertain have said that an insufficient volume of sales to recoup music clearance costs, the details of which have altered since the making of the series, and an unusually high visual clearance issue for a shot in Series 7 prompted a decision not to release any more at the present time.

However, Andrew Marshall has stated that all episodes were produced in clearable worldwide editions and he can see no reason why the series cannot be released other than "Ridiculous BBC internal tariffs" which is a reference to the cost a distribution company has to pay to enter discussions about releasing their programming.
