Reeling in the Years DVD

I bought the DVD of Reeling in the Years 1980s yesterday. Stay away from it. It's a butchered, pale imitation of the original TV show. From what we've watched so far most if not all of the international clips and music have been removed.

Sure, RTE had problems securing the rights to publish lots of the material but at €21.99 a DVD in HMV I would have expected them to at least get some of the interesting stuff. It appears all the scenes that made it into the DVD are just whatever RTE itself happened to have in their archives so the DVD is basically pure profit for them.
