|Network have transferred this series from the only existing source which is a poor quality home video recording from 1978. The picture and sound are vastly inferior to normal vintage material since the original broadcast master tapes no longer exist. The set contains multiple audio and video drop outs, interference and reduced resolution. The rear of the sleeve states the following - The original transmission masters of The Losers have long since been destroyed, with all five episodes on this set digitally recovered from the only existing off-air recordings; episode six remains missing but a PDF of the script is included on this set. Viewers will notice a drop in picture quality when compared to other 1970s series released on DVD.
