24 Hour Party People

I was in the vicinity of JB Hi-Fi today and picked up the 24 Hour Party People DVD. It consists of 2 DVDs; the first one is the movie and commentaries (including one from Tony Wilson, a feat not unlike getting Chopper Read to do the commentary on Chopper), and contains some deleted scenes and interviews. The second one is all bonus features; apparently interviews, a Peter Saville gallery, and some mini-documentaries.

The inner sleeve of the disc announces that Madman are releasing a number of other DVDs in the near future, including the Britpop documentary Live Forever; something else to keep an eye out for.

Also, I heard a rumour that the Goodies DVD coming out in Australia will have different episodes than the one released in the UK; in particular, this one will apparently have the pirate radio episode.

Current Music:
Pulp, Razzamatazz

Alas, apparently the Goodies rumour is unfounded, and the DVD won't have the Pirate Radio episode. Which suggests it will probably be like the UK DVD (the one I bought from Amazon some months ago, and which isn't region-coded).

Oh no... now I'm disappointed. No Pirate Radio on DVD. :-( What episodes are on the DVD you have incidentally?

The episodes are:

disc 1: Tower of London, Gender Education, Kitten Kong, The Goodies and the Beanstalk (which I think is overrated);

disc 2: Kung Fu Kapers, Lighthouse Keeping Loonies, Earthanasia, Saturday Night Grease

The UK DVD is titled "The Goodies ...At Last". The JB Hi-Fi clerk told me that the Australian one is listed as being titled "Season 1" and having 8 episodes. If this is accurate, then it can't be the one I have, as the episodes are from all over the Goodies' BBC career. Apparently it's out on September 1 or so, so time will tell.
