There seems to be two box-sets of Father Ted..

(1) Father Ted - The Definitive Collection [1995] [DVD]
(2) Father Ted : Complete Box Set [DVD] [1995]

(1) seems to have five discs where as (2) has four, but according to amazon (2) has a longer running time (632 minutes compared to 607).

Anyone know why?

There are just commentaries on (2), while there are loads of extras on (1) along with the commentries on (2). I don't know about the rutime problem, but I can assure you all the episodes on (1) are full and not edited. The third series on (1) is split into two discs, while (2) just has it on one disc, hence the extra disc on (1). If you take my advice, you should get (1) as it has much more extras. The price is higher, but I think its worth it.

The Definitive Collection was released both in Region 2 in PAL format, and also in Region 1/NTSC.

Most likely, if you order one from Amazon.co.uk, it'll probably be the R2/PAL one. Unless your friend has region-free/multi-system equipment, you'd be better off to sign into amazon.com instead, and buy him/her the US set, just in case the UK listing says "region 1" by mistake.
