Nine, actually. Ten if a copy of The Mountain Eagle comes to light, Metropolis-style.

Apologies, slip of the tongue. I think they've only green-lit the work on the first 6 so far, but yes will be 9 in total.

It looks like there's some sort of authoring flaw on the BFI edition of this set. On disc one Twenty Minutes of Love ends abruptly after 5m 21s. I was alerted to this by a post on Nitrateville and my copy is the same.

BFI DVD Publishing is aware of this issue and is investigating.

In the meantime, you should be able to watch the whole film via the 'Play All' option.

Same problem with my copy. Obviously this is a fault which only occurs on the BFI edition. Watching the film via the "play all" option doesn't help. I find this very annoying and would like to know if any other member had the same experience.

It skips on mine too, unless I got via Play All and laboriously flick through all that comes before it.

^^^ I did so over a week ago but no reply yet. Anyone else heard anything?

EDIT: It seems they've now taken care of me. Praise and gratitude to the BFI

I received the replacement in a timely fashion, it all took some three days or so. And mind you, I live in Scandinavia.

Anyone else get a faulty disk 4? Mine won't play no matter what I do. AnyDVD just get can't read it, VLC just streams out error messages too and PowerDVD doesn't even detect it in the drive.

Edit: Make that faulty disks 2, 3 and 4. Strange.

I can't speak to a blu release of these films, but all 4 of my discs worked fine when tested this morning. It's probably your player?

Hah, that post was in 2012 and I have no memory of it. Judging by e-mails though, it looks as if I returned and replaced the set.
