I just found out that a classic Welsh sitcom called 'Satellite City' has just been released on DVD.

The sitcom was made by BBC Wales and first broadcast in 1996. The setting was an imaginary small town in the South Wales valleys. The plot centred on the arrival of Randy (Michael Neill), an American visitor, who was taken in by the Price family (but had to share a bed with pensioner Idris, played by Islwyn Morris}. Randy soon formed a relationship with local girl Mandy (Shelley Miranda Barrett). The other main characters were Idris's son, Gwyn (played by Boyd Clack, who also co-wrote the series), Gwyn's wife Moira (Ri Richards), and barman Dai (Rhodri Hugh). In the final series Randy moved into his own flat with Mandy. There are continual references to Idris's ferrets (presumably a family pet), but they are never seen on screen.

The 6 disc set contains:

* 10 ˝ hours of Satellite City
* Includes all three series (18 Episodes)
* Never before seen photos from the show
* Also includes the one hour special, From Here to Maternity
* And the rarely seen one hour pilot episode!

Only available at www.satellitecitystore.com
