  • (1888PressRelease) January 07, 2011 - Fans of the famous Merseyside soap opera Brookside have stepped up their campaign to see the iconic series released on DVD.

    A petition signed by more than 5,000 fans from all over the country has been submitted to Lime Pictures Studios & Channel 4 in an attempt to see a 'best of Brookside' collection released.

    The production company who made Brookside under its previous moniker of Mersey Television still own the rights to the show says Channel 4 who only have the rights to show it online.

    The soap, which ran for 21 years on channel 4, has never had any kind of commemorative DVD in shops since its cancellation in 2003.

    Creator Phil Redmond has also been sent a copy of the petition in an attempt to get 'Brookie' back on the shelves. He also has plans up his sleeve for the axed soap as it steps closer to its 30th Anniversary in 2 years time.

    Lee Brady of the BrooksideFans website said: "We hope that the 5,000 plus signatures we have gained will be enough to get a DVD released for all Brookside fans.

    "We've been waiting to see all the great classic moments & storylines from the 21 years it was running for on Channel 4."

    Dean Sullivan who played as Jimmy Corkhill said' Id like to be involved in any inicative to keep the Brookside name alive'.
    The Campaign is supported by a handfull of former cast including, Louis Emerik, Suzanne Collins, George Christopher, Dean Sullivan & Steven Fletcher to name a few.
