    Hi BEJ,

    I know "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" has just recently been passed by the BBFC, for a Special Edition release by MGM films, for DVD in the UK. I'm pretty certain that because the release will have new extras, new audio commentaries etc, this is going to be the first release of a set of two-disc Bond films.

    I presume the reason they aren't being released in chronological order, (e.g. "Dr No" first, through to "Die Another Day"), is due to obtaining extras, recording audio commentaries, amongst othe reasons, as well as making MGM plenty of money. (I'm guessing that a two-disc release of "Octopussy" is going to sell far-less than a two-disc release of "GoldenEye", hence they are starting with some of the more popular Bond movies that deserve two-disc releases.)

    Well, that is great news! I have the boxset and had heard that 2-disc SEs were on the cards, but i was struggling to find any info on it...guess I could have tried harder!

    If you have any news PoochJD, I'd appreciate knowing more - or at least where online to keep an eye-out. Ta.

    Always wondered why the original DVD release of OHMSS had a mono soundtrack, as the VHS release I had of the title had a Dolby Surround track.
