Why did they cut episodes?


Some racist stuff. There’s a well documented scene with Albert. But they also cut loads of bits as they did a lot of reruns through the day, so chopped out anything that might be deemed offensive. Borderline swear words, homophobia etc.

They also had to cut loads of scenes because of music rights, or lack there of!

I very much doubt it... - although stand to be corrected?

The original, unedited (music etc.), un-PC ones are likely lost in the annals of history now

A mate has said he's found a source on Kodi of all the original stuff but from what he said, the quality wasn't up to much.

Have a read of some of the comments - some people report that there are very few cuts to episodes - probably better than the DVD boxset?

Ah, that's good to know
Great comedy moments, bought the 'complete' box set on DVD earlier this year only to find out it didn't include all the Christmas specials. The kids - 3 girls aged 9, 11 and 13 really enjoyed watching them so I got the missing Christmas specials individually from BBC Store in the summer. All sat down to watch them this Christmas and discovered the store closed on the 1st November...Good old BBC, must have missed the 1 measly email they sent out telling you about it apparently. Given the current climate of austerity I guess it would have been too expensive for the Beeb to archive them off and let you access the content via some cloud service/server somewhere, if you had actually purchased them!

Anyone know if you can buy just the Christmas Specials anywhere, I can't find a 'complete' Christmas Specials set, only a box set covering the 2001, 2002 and 2003 specials.

This deal has a shedload of Christmas episodes - maybe worth purchasing just for them? If you're able to find a complete DVD Boxset for all the Christmas Specials, then great, but I would imagine it wouldn't be that far off this price of £16.99.

He he.I have the original v h s of "A royal flush" and a DVD copied from an aired broadcast recorded to video on its original transmission in 1986.Went to play it the other day and it breaks up halfway through.So this weekend I will see if I can restore it via the computer.
This episode suffered the most from the cuts,must be half hour longer than the episode out there now.

Some were to do with copyright. Also there was a fair bit of risque language which they deemed inappropriate for today.

The iTunes release is largely uncut with original music, wondering if the Google Play release was ever brought up to match it.

A lot of that was to do with John Sullivan himself. He was never happy with that episode and wanted to put it right.

Have just compared Episodes 1-21 with the iTunes Collection and pretty much on a par - actually a few of the Google Play episodes were a bit longer, around 20-30 seconds. So far, so good.

My favourite by far is Christmas special, Batman and Robin, the one scene with the councillor had me in stitches crying with laughter!!
It's subjective whether this is the real mcoy.

You can but the set of Christmas specials digitally on amazon
I'm a simple man, I see Only Fools and Horses, I vote hot
Jolly boys outing
I still have the first 5 series on VHS that I bought in the mid 90's. About the only videos I still have but that's only because they are the unedited and uncensored originals, unlike the DVD set.

Would like to put them on youtube, but I suppose they would be removed quickly.

It's open to subjecture whether this is the real mcoy.


I didn't even know subjecture is a word, fair play, I've been educated tonight.
I don't get this google play , Itunes store thing. Three quid more can get you a hard copy from Tesco which you can rip to any quality and have it for life not depending on mobile data or wifi. The same goes for monthly subscriptions to music services, long live Music Magpie (not affiliated to any) but each to their own I suppose.

Edit,
Actually, I have to say that ebooks are a better idea than physical books and encourage me to read more as it's at hand quicker
Sorry, A bit off topic and a bit of a rant
