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
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.
