  1. Hello,
    I am from Leicester (attended Gateway College at time of filming), I watched it when it was on originally, have read the book so many times and would I would really like to be able to get hold of a copy of this brilliant series to watch again and again, and share with friends.
    Please can you tell me where I can get a copy from ?
    Thank you.

  2. Hi Sarah

    I don’t think that ‘Shalom Salaam’ is commercially available on DVD – and I haven’t got access to a copy. You could always put a post on the Pebble Mill Facebook group – link from this website, and see if anyone has a copy that could be copied for you.

    Best wishes
