Hi Kerry,
I'm sorry to say that it does seem to be only available on the one program,
though it does seem to be both series 1 and 2.
Maybe it's a copyright issue, but I don't see why.
Kind regards. Ian.

Hi Ian.  i will indeed yes.  Is it worth looking at the audio description
section supposedly on the amazon website itself?  Is it possible there is a
difference between what is described in the US and UK?  Surely once the
program has audio description it has audio description.
