“BBC Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 - 3 (October 20th 2003)

On October 20th 2003 BBC Worldwide (BBC America) released the Only Fools and Horses - The Complete Series 1 -3 DVD set containing four DVD’s. Part of the extras on the DVD set is a character biography for each person in the show including the Reliant Regal van. The BBC e-mailed me to ask if I could help with the biography on the van and used information for it from this web site.

In addition they also asked for any pictures I may have of the Reliant Regal in the series but the ones I had were all fairly grainy. As a result I took my own photo of a OFAH van and sent that to them..

I was then delighted to receive on October 13th a complimentary DVD set and after looking at the DVD was delighted to see that my photo was used as the cover for DVD 4, as well as behind it on the packet.  In addition on DVD 4 in the Characters Biography extras, there is a biography on the Reliant Robin* that ends on screen with, “Information on the Reliant Robin from ( c 2002 Elvis Payne.

* The Reliant in Only Fools and Horses is a Reliant Regal Supervan III but the biography is headed Reliant Robin and goes on to say that despite popular misconception the Reliant in the series was actually a Reliant Regal Supervan.
