| PLEASE will someone release the full version ?
I saw the original uncut version on UK television in the late 1970s, an intriguing drama which looked at how the history and story of Christianity could be manipulated given sufficient determination and resources, and it did this long before the Dan Brown novels tackled the idea. The VHS version (on sale via third parties on Amazon and claiming to be unedited) is a completely butchered and dreadful version which is not worth spending money on, as the edits actually remove the explanation and real ending. The original miniseries was actually very good and quite compelling. The cut-down version rates no better than 2 out of 10. PLEASE, if anyone has a copy of the full miniseries, please release it to the world - I, among many others, would gladly pay for this. And I would gladly rate that as at least 8 out of 10. It would be a fitting tribute to the acting skills of Janssen to do so.
