    Hello, regarding the post stating Licensed to Drill been made in 1984, I can let you know, it was made in either 1981 or 1982 because I saw this at school and I left school in 1982.

    An obvious observation to this show was the weird picture colour. Any techy explain why it’s a peculiar looking retro picture?

    Also, the same appears in the final scene at the Trotters Flat in Miami Twice. Kind of looks surreal.

    What has the title got anything to do with the plot of buying an oil rig by the way?

    there is a mozilla add on which can rip video’s in websites called video downloader.

    i do think that somewhere in the massive bbc archive they will have this episode hidden away.

    Hi All, I once had 30x copies of this DVD, incl Cover Artwork etc.
    I sold them on Ebay (until the listing was removed)
    Apparently Ebay or someone objected to this Item being sold..
    They said it was pirated.. apparently ..
    However it was never commercially released, Ebay said they had no objection however.. they couldn’t rule upon it’s listing.. So it was pulled from sale.

    Delboy would have been proud of me..

      hey everyone, you can get a DVD on AMAZON for 5 to 10 pound with all 7 lost/rare episodes of only fools and horses and it has the picture of del with the gun and i’v got the DVD

      • Griff says:

        No you can’t. This is an un-official release of an episode.

        • Liam says:

          You realy can get this DVD but it is a home made DVD with 7 lost/rare episodes in VHS quality and a home made quality cover with the same style of the only fools and horses series, and they did’nt put BBC on the side because it is a home made set
