The Green Death is currently available for purchase on DVD, released on Monday the Tenth of May 2004, around the United Kingdom and Ireland.

Below is the official synopsis for The Green Death.

UNIT is called in after a miner from the Welsh village of Llanfairfach is found dead, his skin glowing bright green. Jo joins forces with a local environmental group, led by Professor Clifford Jones, while the Doctor investigates the nearby plant of a company called Global Chemicals.

They discover that the mine workings are full of giant maggots and green slime - both lethal to touch - that have been produced by chemical waste pumped from the Global plant.

Both previous Third Doctor double packs have recently been made available for £24.99 in branch’s of Forbidden Planet around the United Kingdom and Ireland.
