 More Defining Moments
February 01 2004

Over a year after the release of Neighbours: Defining Moments, a DVD and video release containing some of the best births, deaths and marriages from Neighbours, there is no sign of a sequel. Having contacted Rajon, who made the first DVD, we have learnt that there are currently no plans for a second release, but we feel that there would be a market for it. So, we have decided to begin a campaign to get Neighbours: More Defining Moments released.

The first step in our campaign is to find out which episodes the fans would like to see on this DVD, so that we can offer some idea to those making it. Therefore, during the month of February, we would appreciate it if all of you readers could email us a list of the episodes - be they weddings, births, deaths, arrivals, departures or any other milestones - that you would like to see included. You can do this by emailing us at: dvd@perfectblend.net

The campaign will then continue at the beginning of March when the 30 most popular episodes will be cut down to 15 in another vote. This will form our 'ideal' episode line-up and we will then begin the campaign in earnest.
