Red Dwarf News - Series VI Glitch Update from BBC

From the official board...

Okay, we have responses from the BBC on the two
Series VI DVD issues mentioned recently on the
forum.

Firstly, the black 'border' around episode 1-4,
generally visible only on PCs - hidden on most TV
sets.

The source master tapes had what is known as a line
jitter, and it was decided to add the black line (called
blanking) which in most cases this would not be seen
in the 4:3 format.

It was felt that this was a more aesthetically pleasing
solution that having a wobbly line at the bottom of
the frame. DVD encoding tends to enhance these
sorts of problems which never really manifested
themselves on broadcast or VHS but the problem was
inherent on the source tapes.

Secondly, some U.S. fans have noted a small sound
glitch towards the end of Rimmerworld. Actually, and
annoyingly, this glitch is present throughout all
regions. Unfortunately, it WAS on the digi master
tape for the episode, and thus represents the best
version available.

So - if you have picked up on these issues, DO NOT
return your DVD. It is 'as standard', and duplicated
through all copies.
