Duration

Does anybody know how long this documentary is on the DVD? They showed it on PBS the week Jim Henson died, but it was only in an hour time slot. Are there other versions that are longer? -- Ken (talk) 23:50, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

I must be missing something on the talk page or article. What's the source for the longer running time? —Scott (talk) 22:23, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
Well, I was going to put "60 minutes" on the page, but then I saw that it's been released on DVD in Europe, so I wanted to double check how long it is with anybody who has a copy. IMDb doesn't show a running time at all, and I know that sometimes Europe has longer or alternate versions of Muppet stuff, so I wanted to ask first. -- Ken (talk) 01:08, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
My copy are currently in a moving box, I will see when I will be able to dig it out. Henrik (talk) 08:20, 30 April 2008 (UTC)
The documentary is on for a little over 52 minutes, so if you include three short UK ad breaks, it would take an hour slot in the schedule. It was made in the UK for Channel 4 and was narrated by British actress, Julia McKenzie.

Thanks, Rich! -- Ken (talk) 02:36, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

DVD Release

Did anyone know that this documentary is available on a Netherlands DVD box set of The Muppet Show that was released in 2004. I received it this morning and it appears as an extra feature and seems to be the complete program. -- Mister Superstar 12:12, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

Hey, that's cool. Is there a link to an online store with the features listed? Is it subtitled and are the subtitles locked on the video, or can they be taken off? —Scott (talk) 15:37, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
It's this release De Beste Afleveringen van the Muppet Show: Komieken, Acteurs, Actrices Henrik (talk) 16:09, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
It's shown in English language with optional Dutch subtitles and it has been released on region 2 (PAL). The online store listings always advertise the bonus feature as being called "Henson's Place at the Muppets" which is why I was slightly dubious when I ordered. I am pretty sure that this Dutch set is the only time Henson's Place has ever been released on DVD or video.
This is it advertised on Amazon.co.uk but it isn't listed on Amazon.com. -- Mister Superstar 17:42, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Great, thanks! —Scott (talk) 17:44, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
Besides the Muppet Show set, it was also on the third disc of the Dutch Fraggle Rock boxed set by the same company. English with optional Dutch subtitles. -- Anders De Wit 18:22, 12 February 2008 (UTC)
