Precisely 24 minutes & 19 seconds into the episode. I had to do this via dvd because I've lent my video recorder to a less fortunate friend. I hope that helps!

Thanks Liberator
I've only got it on a video copy of the DVD Commentary version. I'll be able to find the place now and have a look shortly. I can't imagine why they would cut out such a short scene - all will be revealed!

No problem

They cut it because the BBFC thought that children might copy Avon's ear slapping move in school & make all their friends go deaf!!

The same "fight move" was cut out of other releases during that period. The Professionals I believe was one.

I see that, of the first video set, the tapes 1(The Way Back/Space Fall), 15(Dawn Of The Gods/Volcano) and 16(The Harvest Of Kairos/City At The Edge Of The World) aren't marked 'complete unedited' on the front of the box - at least my ones aren't. I'll try and pick up the 'Fabulous' ones (1, 15 and 16) and see what else was cut.

You guys are lucky. I live in the U.S. and I'm STILL waiting for the Region 1 box sets to be released. Lots of BBC shows are available here, old and new shows, but NOT Blakes 7. The show's 30th anniversary is only a couple of years away. It would be nice if some effort was made. Does anybody know what the reason behind the delay is?


I've been wondering too. The article I read (way back) said that they were planning a deluxe release for the UK and a no-frills release for the US. The UK version has been out for a while, but no sign of a US version. I'd really, really like to be able to buy DVDs that will play in my regular player! And, that I can loan to friends so as to make new fans.

Makes you wonder about people... a percentage of kids carry a weapon of some kind, and the bbfc worry about ear slapping

Fabulous reissued the videos in 4 box sets around the time that the first DVD box set was supposed to be released.

I believe that this contained the extra few seconds that was missing from the previous fabulous release.

On my tape with 'Limited Edition One Of 7000' on the front of the video boxes (in the middle on the right in a third column) the censored scene is missing. Are the reissued sets the ones without 'Limited Edition One Of 7000' then?

The Fabulous videos I have without 'Limited Edition One Of 7000' also sound better to me.
