Published by the BBC in 1985, copies of Bird's novelisation of the series are still in circulation.

A search on the net sites of ABE.BOOKS or ALIBRIS for "Michael J Bird" will usually throw up a copy somewhere for a couple of £s.

Copies also come up from time to time on e-Bay: Search e-Bay


In February 2013 Bird's son (also named Michael) published an e-Book version of his father's novelisation for the Kindle.

Listing on Amazon

Even though like me you have probably got a copy of the paperback tucked away somewhere at the back of the bookcase, at only £3.99 Kindle owners will agree I am sure that it is well worth getting an electronic copy to while away the odd half hour commuting to the office or to take with you on those long summer holidays. (And after purchasing don't forget to give the book a good review!)
