Do Not Adjust Your Set DVDs by cameragrrrl on 2 August 2005 3:52pm
 
Hooray, DNAYS finally available on DVD!!!

However, the UK (Region 0) version is 280 minutes. The US (Region 1) version is 124 minutes. Run times are quoted from the Amazon UK and US sites, respectively.

Is this a typo?
Is there extra stuff on the UK edition, not available in Region 1?
Or has the UK adapted some new way of telling time, related somehow to the metric system?

I'd really love to see all this old pre-Python stuff ;-), so I hope the DVDs will be available in Germany, too. It's always a bit difficult to get English DVDs, unless you want to pay a price twice as high as in the UK or USA... But maybe I can get a copy at eBay. Let's see...

Katja86, have you ever tried to have a look at play.com? Their prices include free delivery to several countries (including Germany).
I live in Denmark and have had both DNAYS and At Last the 1948 Show delivered (on the day of release) for GBP 14.99 each. That's 23.99 Euro.

Despite their old age, both shows are great fun :)

(As far as I know region 0 means that the dvd can be played in all regions)

Hey Edith, just trying to piece the Mystery of the Incosistent Total Running Times (TRT) together before splurging:

Can you tell me exactly what extra features are on the UK version of DNAYS?

And what is the official TRT of your set (should be on the box somewhere)?

And Katja, I concur -- the Region 0 (UK version) should, in theory, play in any DVD player.

In theory...

Thanks!

the extra features are- interviews with terry jones and tim brooke-taylor and the uk and usa trailers.
it runs for 259 mins.
region 0 does not play in usa,canada,japan and south korea.
hope that helps. i really think it is worth the money. i have only watched 2 episodes so far but they were brilliant!!!

Thanks, Kristine!
I'll check out the page! If the prices include free delivery, that's great, as this is usually quite expensive. I just checked out amazon.de and some other German pages and they all offer the DVD for about 30...
The region 0 is no problem for my DVD-player. It's playing all foreign DVDs I have without complications.
