Has anyone considered preserving all the promotions that Borat has been doing? I have been able to find Leno, Letterman, Conan and the Daily Show, but I know he's done others.

Also has anyone considered preserving the Borat clips from the UK version of Da Ali G Show? As far as I know, they have not been legitimately released. I've seen them on YouTube but would like to have them in better quality.

These DVDs feature the original Borat sketches from Da Ali G Show. I know the latter two are Region 2, but surely you can get around that?

Thanks for the pointers, I'll look into those

There was a short bit he did at the beginning of an SNL episode recently. I think it's S32E04 and it's the one that features Hugh Laurie as host. That's actually what made me decide to see the movie.

I have the borat interview that he did on the opie and anthony show. The videos are at there website i think.

EDIT: He also did a funny spot on Hannity & Colmes, which is on YouTube, I believe, though the quality can't be very good.

How about the press conference he did in which he denies rumors made by Uzbekistan, and invites OJ Simpson, Mel Gibsons, and Premiere Bush to watch his moviefilm?

Is it? I borrowed the discs (US Seasons one and two, as I'm in the US and A) from a friend and briefly scanned them and couldn't find the Cambridge skit anywhere.....

Good call with contacting the people that up YouTube clips. I'll give that a try

MTV Making the Movie - my copy has an audio/video glitch near the beginning. On the lookout for a better copy

I'm looking for anything I don't have, especially Guide to Cambridge, Guide to Dog Shows and Guide to Method Acting, plus promo clips from Hannity and Colmes, CNN, Fox and Friends, etc. There's a ton of stuff on YouTube but so far I've been unsuccessful at contacting the uploaders. This stuff needs to be preserved in high quality.

Any help would be much appreciated!

i'm 99.9% sure the commencement speech is on the season 2 discs, but i'll dig out my dvd's and check. i'll look through all my SBC stuff to see if i have the clips you're looking for. i'm glad you're on this, cuz i was thinking the same thing, but i'm in the middle of a move and i'm too lazy right now to do this!

Yes the commencement speech is on the Season 2 disc... but it's Ali G, not Borat, and it's at Harvard not Cambridge... That's not what I'm looking for.

I'm looking for the clip where Borat goes to Cambridge, talks with some students and learns to play cricket. See here... http://youtube.com/watch?v=Q6hz8r1Ie-c

Okay so here are the Borat skits that I don't have yet

Guide to Cambridge = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6hz8r1Ie-c
Guide to Dog Shows = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-XOtPL8Kv80
Guide to Method Acting = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwWcQI7pQwg

And of course I'm still missing the various interviews on Fox and Friends, Hannity and Colmes, CNN, Julian Barbarie, etc.

There's a ton of stuff out there. Somebody has to have had it to up to YouTube... it's just a matter of getting the people to reply to my inquiries that is frustrating!

Great success! I have locate the clip of Borat at Cambridge.

Bad news, it's in crappy RealVideo format

It's from the third episode of the UK Ali G Show if that helps us find a better quality version.......

The other bad news is that he tends to do the same jokes quite a bit on these interviews -- the whole, "Premiere Bush and his father Barbara" schtick.

No movement on this end... everyone I've emailed either didn't write back or said "use YouTube"

*bump*

I've got a preview DVD that was a freebie in my local music store. It has the US theatrical trailer... well I assume it's the US one as the one I've seen is different. It also contains the first 4 minutes of the film and 5 deleted scenes. It's a letterboxed PAL disc with high-bitrate video of around 8-9Mb/s (the audio is 192kb/s). All up the disc runs for 11mins 43secs straight, i.e. there is no menu.

Here is the list of deleted scenes (with descriptive names) in no particular order:
* Borat asking about cheese in a supermarket
* Borat gets pulled over by the Dallas Police
* Borat at an animal shelter trying to get a dog
* Borat gets arrested for trying to cross the Mexico/US border
* Borat tells a doctor about the sexual diseases he's had

So, is this disc of any use to anyone? I suppose since it's only around 12mins I could rip it and upload it somewhere? I know that if the eventual DVD doesn't have these scenes (which is unlikely, but still...) then I'll be happy for having picked this freebie up.
