That’s fine, I’ll PM you when they’re up. With “Percy Runs Away” and “Coal”, from what I understand the didn’t have nameboards inbetween when they were originally broadcast, just freeze-frame credits for “Percy Runs Away” and original intro for “Coal”. This was also the case on the original 1985 Kaleidoscope VHS releases. This was then altered for the 1988 and 1992 rereleases where they replaced the end credits of “Percy Runs Away” with “Coal”'s end credits (no idea why) and with “Coal” they did the regular intro THEN the nameboards. You’ll understand what I mean when you see them. If you want to recreate the OBV of those two episodes, use the Kaleidoscope 1985 VHS versions, or if you want to have a nameboard sequence, use the 1988/1992 versions.

That’s fine about Series 3 and 4. For me, the early prototype narration is my definitive version as it’s the first version I heard. I just thought they’d be nice to have as an alternate audio track.
