First issued in Digi-Pak and later pressings came in a gatefold cover. Both have the same reference number.

 Additional Information by rein-o (32)   19/01/2005 - Last update: 30/11/2005 

First issue Digipak is missing some scenes:

  • Time on side one is 59:27, time on side two is 28:31

Second issue is Gatefold, film is complete:

  • Time on side one is 60:03, time on side two is 30:01

 Additional Information by roger (1)   30/11/2005 

The couple of missing sequences that are restored are clearly 16mm prints as the quality drop is noticable yet the recent BBC transmission of the film (2005 showing) was clearly the complete film from a 35mm source.

My copy has a severe defect on side 2: unable to Watch the supplemental section in CAV.

 Additional Information by gatewood213x     07/08/2014 

My disc also has a defect on side two, speech is garbled at the very end where Scotty is talking on the radio and the rest of the features at the very end are no accessible.
