Shada was originally released on VHS video in 1992, way before webcasts became a thing. Being updated with animation and put on a DVD was a logical progression due to the fact that it is an excellent story.
I suspect that Scream moved to DVD when Adobe announced Flash was being discontinued, thereby rendering it no longer watchable on the BBC website.
MISSY: We’ve had a long history of treating creation like dogs treat lamp posts. CRISPY: And you wanted to see if we could do better.
I just assumed myself that the first two - Death Comes to Time and Real Time were fairly rudimentary and were released early on in Audio format, which satisfied most. They hail from the days of Dial up Modem Internet, for example. Shada and Scream of the Shalka benefitted from more sophisticated animation and were, with the exception of the TVM, visual stories from two Doctors otherwise absent from fan collections.
I agree though that Real Time & Death Comes to Time, whilst not being substantial enough for a standalone release, should be considered prime VAM material for any future Blu Ray Collection. Or as key titles within a 'Wilderness Years' compilation, for example.
