This new edition is a widescreen shot-for-shot recreation of the original 2-part broadcast, complete with Part 2 promo and Part 1 recap, using a VHS dub of an ancient original Betamax recording of the 1976 broadcast as a visual and aural reference.
Video and principal audio has been sourced from the PAL mgm dvd. Original ABC narration has been lifted from the aforementioned videotape and mixed with the audio of the mgm dvd.
Although mastered in PAL, the project has been converted to NTSC - to test the capabilities of my new Canopus Procoder 2.0 encoding software.
Hi-res sleeve art has been created for the project by that same artistic genius responsible for the recent dvd's of the 'banned' Criterion Bond's.
A website showcasing the remastered OHMSS ABC Cut will be online soon for the benefit of the one, perhaps two, among the forum readership for whom this topic might hold interest. The site will merely outline the processes involved in creating this purely private fan project.
