    I have been re-watching Jesus of Nazareth, one of my all-time favorite films. I understand that in 1977, it was run as a mini-series in two three hour installments (with limited commercials.) I heard years ago that the film was shown with additional footage in 1979 (when it became four two-hour episodes.) That means almost an hour was added, not including commercials. Does anyone know what may have been added? The only scene I can think of is the dream sequence that Joseph looks rough compared to the rest of the film.

    I don't know the answer to your question, but the whole transfer on the current dvd looks rough to me. I love this movie and am glad it is out on dvd, but I would have loved to have had the video and audio cleaned up properly before it was released.

    Peter & Paul starring Anthony Hopkins has an even worse transfer if you can believe that.
