7 Up, Seven Plus Seven and 21 Up were all produced by Granada Television.
They also co-produced the subsequent editions. They are not listed as
available now, but I have a 1989 catalogue that still showed Granada as the
distributor (though this is primarily for broadcasting, not home video use).
They would be the logical people to pursue, but judging by the odd lengths
of the films -- 45 and 52 minutes respectively for the first two -- it's
unlikely they would bother with a video release unless these films can be
bundled together. Even this risks being redundant because of the repetitive
content (each new segment utilizes clips from the previous). Another
alternative is to urge your favorite local broadcaster (preferably one that
specializes in airing this type of specialized programming) to acquire this
series for broadcast. If so, be sure to mention Granada as the distributor.
