BBFC Classifications!

Hooray! So, let’s see what we’ve got, shall we?

01:09:52:24 RED DWARF – THE BEGINING – SERIES 1
01:09:52:02 RED DWARF – IT’S COLD OUTSIDE – SERIES II

We knew the Series 1 and 2 docs were going to be 70 minutes each… but seeing it down to the frame like that brings it home. Fucking hell.

00:32:27:18 RED DWARF
No title, but with a process of elimination, this should be The End: The Original Assembly. NEEDTHISNOWKTHXBYE.

00:36:20:04 RED DWARF – BODYSNATCHER
Yep. 36 minutes sounds a good time for the feature as well – a 30 minute script, with six minutes or so of stage directions. Interestingly, Identity Within was 44 minutes long – but that’s first drafts from outside writers for you.

00:20:58:24 RED DWARF
Again no title, but this must be Re-Dwarf.

00:00:47:18 EASTER EGG – LOST MOMENTS
Oooh! This surely be the two moments accidentally missed off the main series DVDs; the Souper smeg up, and Kryten’s introduction to the Munchkin Song on the Xtended tape. HAPPY NOW?

00:01:18:23 PARADISE DEACH – DELETED SCENE
00:01:26:08 SAUNA – DELETED SCENE
00:01:33:22 NEW GORDON – DELETED SCENE
00:01:24:24 HOLLY INTROS – DELETED SCENE

The usual deleted scenes. Oh, sorry, for a moment there I thought I was some PRICK MAGAZINE REVIEWER.

00:14:36:23 RAW CGI FOOTAGE – DVD EXTRAS
Blimey! Something that is – as yet – unannounced. How much more can they squeeze on this fucking thing? This is great news, anyway – I’m hardly the biggest fan of the new CGI in the Remastered series, but – as usual – that doesn’t stop it being hugely interesting.

00:00:50:07 MODEL SHOT
Hmmm. Now, this is odd. It’s not the Movie test footage – that’s part of the Re-Dwarf docco, not a separate item. However, 50 seconds is about the length of the end credits of Dwarf – could it be that my bitching about it being ridiculous that the most iconic model shot ever in Dwarf didn’t make it into the raw footage on the Series 1 DVD has been listened to?

00:08:27:23 (NO TITLE ON SCREEN)
DAMN YOU. But no matter – at eight minutes long, this is clearly Dad. Eight minutes! I’d forgotten it was that long. Fantastic.

00:02:00:22 (‘TIMESLIDE/LISTER’S FATHER’ – LOST SCRIPT EXTRACT)
00:01:09:08 (INFINITY PATROL – LOST SCRIPT EXTRACT)
00:00:36:06 (RIMMERS DUMMY – LOST SCRIPT EXTRACT)

The thing that gets me about this is that I’m so amazingly impressed that they bothered to re-enact a 36 second script extract…

00:04:48:19 PETE TYLER 8MM REEL
Yes please.

00:06:52:06 REMASTERED PROMO
00:05:20:22 REMASTERED PRESS PROMO

Talk dirty to me, Ed. This is the first time we’ve had timings for these, though – twelve minutes in total! That’s fantastic – I’d expected it to be three or four minutes at the most…

So, are we missing anything? Well, the Daytime UK interview isn’t there, so expect that to show up on the BBFC at some point. The only other obvious omission is any animated menus – but then, we don’t know what form the menus are going to take at this point. If they aren’t moving menus, then they won’t show up – only video content has to go through the BBFC, not stills or audio (although some companies stick the commentaries through, it’s not obligatory). So it’s a wait and see on that one.

Right. Time to clean up.

    Ahh, it’s just like the good old days.

  2. Gah! Official Red Dwarf Site! New DVD announced! JUST THE SMEGS! Out in November!

    Gibber…

  3. G&T Admin

    I’m massively impressed that EVERYTHING on is on there, too! It says a lot when the Out-takes DVD has more thought going into it that the majority of main releases out there.

  4. Good to get the TV Smegs out there, The broadcast version has that nifty opening sequence, is the only Smegs compilation to have Rimmer in the links, and features the famous ‘Noel Edmonds/’Smeg Ups’ Danny re-dub…

    The outtakes themselves are previously-seen, of course (watch as Kryten is laid pitcture-in-picture over the OLD Kryten picture-in-picture during the golf sequence!), but I was hoping people would be pleased to see it included.

  5. From TOS:
    “(Not to mention a clever introduction showing Lister falling off his cradle as he paints the ship…)”

    I KNOW I’ve seen that clip before, and the TV Smegs were never aired here in the US (at least, not that I saw…that much I know).

    Was this clip used elsewhere? A documentary or something? I KNOW I’ve seen it…

  6. G&T Admin

    I linked to it on YouTube a while back…

  7. The TV smegs have aired on some PBS stations, I believe. But yeah, John’s link was probably the place.

    We have an alternate take of the fall (a more painful-looking one, frankly) as rushes on the end credits of ‘Re-Dwarf’.

  8. >John?s link was probably the place.

    Ah, right! Thanks.

    The Smegs were aired on PBS? That’s news to me, and I’m sorry I missed them.

  9. G&T Admin

    Article now updated. Sorry for the delay in TELLING YOU ALL WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW.

  10. >I?m so amazingly impressed that they bothered to re-enact a 36 second script extract?

    There can be only one reason for them to do so: it’s really, really funny.

  11. G&T Admin

    I’m really interested to know what episode it was meant to be in. If it ever got that far…

  12. G&T Admin

    > 00:00:50:07 MODEL SHOT

    As much as I’d love this to be the original fly-by, I have a suspicion this is the newly built model we saw at DJ a few years ago.

  13. G&T Admin

    I don’t think so – the DVD Details article says that the Remastered camera pass is used in the documentary, not as a separate menu item.

  14. > the DVD Details article says that the Remastered camera pass is used in the documentary,

    It doesn’t, actually; and it isn’t. The movie version is in the doc, the BBC Vis-FX version is on the DVD via the menu.

    However, the FULL original closing-credits model shot is available on The End: The Original Assembly. Recreating what would have made the first cut, we’ve used it without any credits rolling over. (Much as the opening title sequence was shown to the studo audience each week, and the closing theme played to them.)

    > Interestingly, Identity Within was 44 minutes long – but that?s first drafts from outside writers for you.

    Actually, that’s pretty much Dwarf for you – remember this is the cut-down, sorta-properly-timed version, not the full-length audio, which we’re making available separately. And the audio-only full-cut runs at…44 minutes!

    > Again no title, but this must be Re-Dwarf.

    I suspect someone at the BBFC failed to notice the Re-Dwarf logo had replaced the first D with a hyphen…

    > I?m really interested to know what episode it was meant to be in. If it ever got that far?

    It didn’t. It’s just a funny bit of business, as with Infinity Patrol. But yeah, it made me giggle when I found it, so we shoved it on.

  15. G&T Admin

    It doesn?t, actually; and it isn?t. The movie version is in the doc, the BBC Vis-FX version is on the DVD via the menu.

    Fair enough. The article does imply that it’s included in the doc, though, because it’s mentioned *after* the line “Now, all of these pieces are available individually on the DVD, but we’ve also got a few fascinating clips within the documentaries themselves.”

    Not that it matters! Especially as the original shot is on TE:TOA.

    Forgot about the edits made to Bodysnatcher, too.

  16. I like that you get to choose between either a “sweet” or “slutty” anal orgasm.
