Sorry for the new thread, but the search feature sucks...

Can anyone answer a few questions abou this? Is this the doc I've heard about that had some clips of Disney films in it's original broadcast but were then edited out of subsequent home video releases?

If so, is there anywhere to see the original version with the clips intact?

If there's no way to see it, does anyone have a time stamp of when the clips should be in the show? Even a close estimation within a few minutes would be helpful.

Thanks!

Actually I think the 77 doc is intact. The "spfx: EMPIRE" special is the one that had a couple clips from other movies pulled many years ago. I've never seen it as broadcast but I believe it's a very minor thing. (Look for the part where Mark Hamill is talking about other movies and they show a shot from Close Encounters, I think the change was made in there somewhere)

There were clips from Mary Poppins and The Black Hole in the original version, which were cut from the video releases and later TV airings. (However, they kept Mark's line about "an English nanny getting full value out of her umbrella.")

There is a copy on YouTube with the clips intact (from a British TV airing?):

That goes without saying.

I want to be naked, running through the streets.
I want to invite this so-called chaos you think I dare not be.
I want to be weightless, flying through the air.
I want to drop all these limitations and return to what I was born to be.
