Has anyone seen the new Australian DVD edition of season one
( It is coded region 4,
but with a multi-region player it should not be a problem to see it
elsewhere than Australia.
The given overall running time of 750 minutes would account for 15
episodes of 50 minutes but I cannot find an episode list. The short
contents descriptions of the four DVDs could be written for the BBC or
dutch edition as well.
At another address
( the same edition
is to include five DVDs instead of four but with only 632 minutes
contents. That does not make sense at all.
I would much like to know if this edition is cut like the others or not.
