It’s been 40 years since the first episode of The Young Ones was broadcast in November of 1982. To celebrate, C60 media was delighted to work with BBC Studios to produce a lot of new content on a special blu-ray release for the legendary series.

C60 was responsible for producing 10 new commentaries for the release, featuring stars from both infront and behind the camera, such as: Alexei Sayle, Nigel Planer, writer Lise Mayer, and producer Paul Jackson. These guests shared fresh memories while, in some cases, were watching the episode again for the first time in four decades.

The curation of hours bonus video material was another highlight, with many exciting pieces of footage rediscovered from the cutting-room floor and presented here for the first time. The set was number one on Amazon in the DVD & blu-ray section when announced.
