Will Smith
He's rather posh don't you know

Will Smith on Bergerac

Listen in as comedian Will Smith talks about Bergerac, his live show and Armando Ianucci with John Uphoff.

For the past few years Jersey Boy, and top comedian Will Smith has been tirelessly campaigning for the release of Bergerac on DVD, until now he didn't actually think it would happen.

In a stroke of amazing coincidence BBC Radio Jersey's John Uphoff show managed to arrange for Will Smith to talk about his tour (and it coming to Jersey) on the same day that BBC Worldwide officially announced the release date for the release of Bergerac series one on DVD.

In the interview John talks to Will about various aspects of campaigning for the Bergerac release, writing for the Thick of It, his tour and a few interesting confessions on both sides of the mic.

Hear John confess to having taped every episode of Bergerac of UKTV Gold and hear Will as he tells a tale of chasing his flatmate around with a sign demanding the release of Bergerac (pretending his flatmate is a BBC Executive of course).

How about a reunion episode ? A special one off to see if the enthusiasm is still there. I reckon it would be like a Take That reunion ! Best series ever.

Anxiously awaiting in America for Bergerac on DVD. Also, how about a timely rerun on BBC America.

I have been searching the web to see if Bergerac was available on DVD. I watched it on public television in the SF Bay Area. I found that the DVD of season one is available but I could not find it available on any US website. I hope that is just a matter of time.

I want to thank you for the release of Bergerac, John Nettles is a firm favourite around here.. I never saw Bergerac in the UK as we were living in the United States [we still are] but heard so much about it and have waited for such a long time to order.. HOWEVER when is the next series coming out ?.. please tell us there will be the second series to look forward to very soon!! for John Nettles/Bergerac fans !! and then the other series to follow.. .. marion

I too have been searching for Bergerac dvds etc for years. Good watchable series and deserves to be shown more often.
