Steptoe and Son - Christmas Special (BBC) 1973 - 2016 RESTORED (7800kbps CBR PCM)

Christmas has come early... ;-)

This is the full unedited version of the 1973 Special, taken from a BBC 2 repeat during the 1990's. What resides on the official DVD releases, are all edited versions. So here's your chance, to get the full unedited version, now fully restored - and including the original BBC continuity prior to the episode starting, just for completeness.

The opening title sequence, that was filmed, is now clean... All that dirt and dust has now gone, forever!

Although it could be argued, that this isn't a lost episode that now only resides in the BBC's archive as a black and white telerecording (like a fair few of the others), the whole Special has benefited (IMHO) from this restoration...

As always, for my restorations, this needs to be watched back on something that'll display interlaced video...

See below, for more details on what you need to do, to accomplish that...:

Tip:

If you're not going to watch this back on a proper CRT TV (remember those...), then use the following media player and settings:

VLC media player is an ideal candidate, if you plan to watch this back on an LCD or LED flat screen computer monitor.

Available here for Windows:
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Or here for Mac OS X:
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-macosx.html

Once installed, and the video is playing back, hit Pause, then go up to the Menu > Video and change the following two default settings:

1. Video > Deinterlace > On
2. Video > Deinterlace mode > Linear or Yadif (2x)

Once those are set, then hit Play...

Enjoy...!

Nice to see you over here...

Indeed... That's what comes from encoding at a constant bit-rate of 7800kbps with uncompressed PCM audio - which you know only too well, is what I use for all my restorations...

Enjoy... ;-)

Nice to see you over here... Was wondering, when those over there at the other place, would spot that this must be available somewhere (a place I couldn't mention over there at the other place, of course). Or maybe, a mutual friend, just directed you...

Thanks.
I've been here for a few months (this is where I first saw your work) as it's pretty much open for all to see, but I only needed to create an account today :)

You take the restoration work seriously, which is good to see.
