Steptoe and Son (S01E01) The Offer - UPDATED RESTORATION!

Steptoe and Son (S01E01) The Offer (BBC) 2014 RESTORED - VidFIRE(D) (7800kbps CBR PCM) - DVD / ISO Image

This is an UPDATED restoration, to the one which was posted here during May of 2011.

Don't delay, as these are not going to be available indefinitely, at the place they currently reside...!!!

Please note: WinRAR will be needed, to join the two files below back together, before you'll be able to burn it off to a DVD.

You can download WinRAR from the link that follows: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

Steptoe and Son (S01E01) The Offer (BBC) 2014 RESTORED - VidFIRE(D) (7800kbps CBR PCM) For CRT TV

For CRT TV: As part of the restoration this has also been stabilised. If you were to watch this on a LCD TV / monitor and then take a look at the extremities of the frame, the top and bottom, you'll be able to see the stabilising process in action. When watched back on a CRT however, this is hidden by a CRT TVs overscan (the situation when not all of a televised image is present on a viewing screen), so won't get in the way of your viewing / become a distraction.

For LCD TV: As part of the restoration this has also been stabilised. I’ve slightly cropped this restoration so you’ll not be able to see the stabilising process in action at the extremities of the frame, the top and bottom. The reason for doing this (as LCD TVs / monitors don't use overscan), is so the stabilising process doesn’t get in the way of your viewing / become a distraction.

Again, although I’ve seen this episode many many times (like most of you), I’ve never experienced the feeling of intimacy that reinstating the video-look (the VidFIRE) has given to this particular restoration.

Indeed, it’s like you’re watching something you’ve never seen before… It’s the same episode, but seen from a very different angle. Very difficult to explain, as it really needs to be experienced...

So, download, and have the pleasure of experiencing the intimacy of something that although old, now feels pretty new (despite it being in good old black and white)!

Once downloaded, burn the ISO image to a DVD and watch it back on a proper CRT TV (for the absolute best possible experience), otherwise the main purpose of the restoration; reinstating the video-look/feel will be completely lost – along with that real experience of intimacy mentioned above.

Enjoy, something the BBC would’ve never allowed you the pleasure of – and dare I say, a real World First, into the bargain! :wink:

Amen to that Bob.

Pixel, someone needs to write a sternly worded letter to the BBC I think!! You are spoiling us with all of these! Are you Father Christmas??
