    Hysterical, since I get insulted at a ratio of about 50 to 1.

    Yes, its coming, but no word on if it will be the old Worldvision timesped 46 minute tapes or complete. I'm thinking that its possible that Worldvision may have made 2 sets of one-inch transfers, a complete version and an edited one.

    FINALLY !!! :dancing-banana-04:
    My Holy Grail has been released. Took long enough.
    Hopefully they are unedited and not time sped.
    Its seems the former YouTube poster County General was uploading unedited and non time sped Worldvision prints, Hopefully these are the same, a little sharper and minus that crappy Worldvision logo at the end.
    Better late than never.

    BCP.

    I never knew that Bing Crosby had another logo prior to the one we knew from Hogan's Heroes!

    Ben ,

    That BCP logo was used on the Ben Casey series from 1961 until 1963.
    On a side note...isn't it amazing how those supposed "music clearance" issues suddenly cleared up allowing this DVD release.

    Must be the Capitol library being utilized for the underscores, but Bob Thompson was given on-screen credit for additional music in a season one episode, you know, the guy who wrote the "New Sunset" theme for the final season of "77 Sunset Strip".

    Not sure we can say that yet. Someone theorized earlier that the shortened "My Three Son's" episodes may have been due to cutting out music segments, and not the initially suspected syndicated versions. Easier to cut then to replace. If true, it is quite possible "Ben Casey" may follow a similar path. We will know more when someone receives the first season and can report back the lengths of the episodes.

    If so, then you insult at a ratio of 100 to 1, as well as tending to be the instigator more often than not. :)

    Volume 1 states that it's 799 minutes for 16 episodes, which works out to about 50 minutes for each show. Volume 2 says it's 801 minutes.

    Yes, and I'm hoping that they are complete. Just saying...IF music clearance was an issue for "Ben Casey", and IF that is how they handled it for "My Three Son's", I'd wait for reviews, if that is a concern.

    HI all,

    I'm going to purchase Vol. 1 tonight and I'll report back what I find...that is if some one doesn't beat me to it.

    This is encouraging. The CBS MOD DVDs for The Young Lawyers were unremastered, but uncut and watchable, so hoping they have full-length, un-sped versions of Ben Casey in the vaults.

    I'm hoping for the visual quality to be at least as good as what I saw on CBN back in the 90's
    and that they are unedited and not time sped.
    I'm also hoping that the crappy Worldvision logo at the end is replaced with the original Bing Crosby Productions logo, but I'm not holding my breath on that.
    I ordered my DVD from Amazon last night and expect it this week.

    casey.

    I'm hoping it for you! Truth is, though, even if such a thing does not come true, at least we're getting to see Ben Casey for the first time on DVD, so there's that.

    Thanks Ben. You're so right.
    You probably know how long I've been waiting for this DVD release.
    I'll take it in any form as long as its watchable....and hopefully unedited/time sped. ;)
