    Apparently the thought police at Disney have deemed the Uncle Remus character to be "non-PC" - much along the lines of MGM's equally ridiculous stance on the black maid in "Tom & Jerry".

    I even read that some in Disney view the movie as an embarassment and that it may never see the light of day on DVD.

    The White-American guilt trip strikes again! :rolleyes:

    One can imagine how inapproriate it is - the Beeb are showing it for kids at 11am.

    Just to let you know this film has been transmitted on terrestrial tv before 'cause I recorded it. plus It was in fact released on video over here some years ago on account that I purchased it, then took it back as it stated on the cover that it was in dolby surround, obviously remastered or so I thought, when in fact it was in mono as it would have been all those years ago, and it was only presented full frame, once again as it would have been given its vintage, and as I recorded it off telly in s-vhs my picture quality was better than the commercial product. :)
