  • The Multimedia San Paolo (Milan, Italy) VHS release, on 2 cassettes, is cut. It has a listed running time of 370 minutes. The Multimedia San Paolo (Milan, Italy) DVD release, on 2 discs, is cut. It has a listed running time of 370 minutes. The ElleU Multimedia (Rome, Italy) DVD release, on 2 discs, is cut. It has a listed running time of 392 minutes.
  • The ElleU Multimedia (Rome, Italy) DVD release, on 2 discs, eliminates the initial and final titles of each of the eight parts of the original TV movie (except for the initial titles of the first and for the final titles of the last one), thus presenting the whole series as a single movie. On the contrary, the VHS release, on 3 cassettes, maintains the titles of every single part. This could be the reason for the different running time, leading to the conclusion that the DVD release is not cut.
