It cannot be understated how poorly the BBC has handled the OFAH boxset. Episodes have been substantially cut down and entire elements removed to minimise the amount owed on royalties and to accommodate TV timeslots. There is no excuse for a DVD boxset to use the truncated format instead of the original.

Is the ‘older’ complete box set with the leopard skin box art cut or is that complete??

According to Wikipedia, the iTunes version restores most of the cuts, original music edits and dialogue.

The music rights have expired on a lot of episodes. This isn't an "excuse". They'd have renegotiate the rights for every recording used and pay whatever they are told they have pay. This takes lots of time and lots of money they would be reflected in the cost of the DVDs and make them too expensive.

This is true. Apart from the magazine DVD collection that was released mid 00’s, the itunes collection of digitals are as close to their originals airing as your going to get on any form of current media. A shame, because some of the cuts ruin gags and episode fluidity.

Lobly Jobly !

I never believed first world problems were a thing until i read this post.

Seeing as the tax payer paid for this content originally, its £22.17 too expensive in my opinion.

If you go to any large car boot sale you will find this box set for a tenner. they usually have the cellophane wrapping missing from the first two DVD boxes and the rest are still sealed. People buy them for nostalgic reasons but never get around to watching them.

I've actually held on to my original Vhs copy of "A Royal Flush" as its around 30 minutes longer than the version now out there.
I think that episode suffered worst of all.

How do you get it for £22.19.....I'm getting £26.24??

I'd happily pay double to get full uncut edits as broadcast. As decent a deal as this might be, I'm getting annoyed at these releases at such a deal price at the expense of bad edits to save on royalties and negotiations to pay such royalties.

That's a quality bit of information,mate.
Thanks,man.

Is it possible to get an original, unedited box set?

Thanks ordered have some heat

Someone bought me the complete magazine set they did so have all of them uncut . But for this price be nice to have the series together on a few disks as the magazine is split to about 3 episodes a disk

If they have been edited (cut) then it's not even worth having them for FREE.

From my knowledge all the one's on sale nowadays have been cut politically correctness, I wouldn't have them for free totally changes how something was made. I converted the complete set I had on VHS to mp4 before i got rid of them they work perfectly on my pc or Amazon fire box.
