Mrs. J. Kent says:
I read somewhere that the adventures in this collection have been cut and are shorter than the original broadcast, can someone verify that?

Thanks

Yes, there have been edits to all the episodes on this box set:
All the episodes have music replaced for contractual reasons.
The Polar and Botswana specials are extended "director's cuts" (though oddly, the Polar special now has no title sequence)
The US special now only has a run time of 51:50. After watching the DVD version then searching through a BBC2 recording on youtube, I found the following scenes missing from the DVD: the title sequence is missing (the episode now jumps strait to the last shot of the titles); the presenters driving through and commenting on Florida; Jeremy and James having problems starting their cars as they begin the trip to New Orleans; the three presenters using the CB radios for the first time and using their call signs; more problems with Jeremy's car and buying accessory for their cars; and driving through heavy rain where Jeremy's window wipers break. Theses edits are obvious as the presenters now keep referencing events that didn't happen or things that were never explained, and the accessories appear with no explanation half way through the special.
