Brief: An unlicensed version of The New Avengers Series 1 which despite claiming to contain 13 episodes, in actuality only contains 12 Faces is omitted as the issuer had no access to a Russian soundtrack for this episode (the other episodes have Russian dialogue over the original English language track). To add insult to injury, the twelve episodes are contained on a single disc, albeit a double-sided one, and no English language track is included. The picture quality is very poor no great surprise with 6 episodes a side! All told, an excellent advert for official products!

Brief: As with Series 1, the unlicensed version of The New Avengers Series 2 omits an episode Forward Base despite claiming to include it - as the issuer did not have access to a Russian soundtrack of the episode. Again, the twelve episodes are split six episodes per side of a double-sided disc, leaving much to be desired in the quality stakes.

Regulars to The Avengers Declassified will note that up until now, VHS and DVD pages have featured front face covers only, but I just had to show the full sleeves here particularly this one, as it features not only images from the wrong era of The Avengers (Series 5, Emma Peel) but also the wrong programme completely! The second image down on the back face cover above is actually from a New Avengers spoof in The Benny Hill Show! Priceless!
