    Danny (totally off-topic now) - please change your signature. Having an equipment list in a sig can cause problems when people search for info on a particular item.
    Thanks

    [​IMG] I'm not going to suffer Pulldown for some swearing in the documentary. If R4 is uncut I'll probably get that. [​IMG]

    If I'm not mistaking, there's no profanity on the R1 DVD either. I think it's been bleeped. I guess bleeping wasn't good enough for the BBFC and so the profanity had to be completely removed.

    What Ivan said reminded me of something:
    http://www.dvdfile.com/news/special_...ccallum_1.html
    Check out McCallum's comments about cussing and colorful language. Jim Ward says they bleeped it out for the DVD. I wonder if it is the same thing they are talking about at dvd debate?
    Personally, I still think this is a nonissue, but at least it's fun to confirm there are bigger geeks than me out there. Present company excluded, of course.
