For long time the German TV-channel Pro7 (ProSieben) has broadcasted the original 1999 theatrical version of "The Phantom Menace", as available on the Widescreen VHS, and the original 1997 Special Edition Trilogy, with better Jabba in "A New Hope" and original Anakin ghost in "Return of the Jedi". Also all movies where broadcasted in 4:3 Letterbox (original Widescreen as on VHS, only in much better Quality), had the original German theatrical subtitles for the alien languages, and the old German "Krieg der Sterne" opening crawls for the Trilogy. I think these Versions where broadcasted from the beginning of their availability until 2007 or 2008, after that they changed to the DVD-versions. Now I ask the community if anyone has digital records of these older TV-versions in good Quality (DVB-T, DVB-C or DVB-S). I only have bad VHS-Records of them, but need them in good quality for my collection.
In Hungary all six movies where broadcasted by the channel "RTL Klub" in 4:3 Pan&Scan, with original Hungarian subtitles for the alien languages and the Prequels had the original hungarian written opening crawl as in cinema. I also search this versions as digital records in good quality (DVB-T, DVB-C or DVB-S).
The same versions, which I'm searching from Pro7, where also broadcasted by the Austrian channel ORF1. This Austrian broadcasts would be better, because they have no commercial breaks and the TV-Logo is on the Black bar and not in Picture. But "The Phantom Menace" is the most important, because its cinema version and its original DD2.0 stereo-mixed German sound. Also on VHS the German subtitles for the alien languages are put on the black bar, on TV they are the same in-picture subtitles as seen in cinemas.
