I'm afraid Olivia's info might be wrong. The list of extras is only true for the double disc edition) currently at Ł29.99) and the single disc edition has no extras at all. Can someone confirm who is right, me or Olivia?
Thanks.

I have the one disc edition, K and it has all the extras I mentioned above. I bought it from right here.

If you look at the Product details for the £27.99 version that you are talking about (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Speech-Exclusive-Commentaries-Original-Speeches/dp/B00530ZOG2/ref=sr_1_4?s=dvd) you will see that is has one disc only (not two!) and it is released by the same studio: Momentum Pictures Home Ent.

But like I said before, I have this cheaper edition.

Right, let's get it straight finally: now I understand that there are two different single-disc editions, one (the affordable one at Ł5.99) without any extras and another one (the terribly expensive one at Ł27.99) with all the extras. Still, I don't understand why you posted the info about the extras under the cheap edition without any extras.

THIS EDITION HAS ALL THE EXTRAS AS THEY ARE LISTED ABOVE!
If you had clearly read my first post you will see that one of the Customer Service guys has confirmed that these are the special features included on the disc.

I have BOUGHT and OWN this edition at £5.99 and I can personally confirm that it has all these extras. Of course I posted here, because this is what I bought, not the other edition. Why don't you believe me?

It's not that I don't believe you, Olivia, I just want to be 100% sure what I'm gonna get if I decide to buy the item above.

I admit I can't understand why there is the regular cheap edition with all the extras and another costly "special edition" containing the same extras. It is confusing, don't you think?

Also, in my country people are writing on forums that Britain has two editions of the film: single disc without any extras and a double-disc edition with the extras - that's why I wanted information from someone who has actually bought the edition above. Thank you Olivia, I'm going to place my order soon :-)

I also don't know or understand why there's a new expensive edition now, but when I bought this it was still almost 20 pounds. You can e-mail customer service to report and ask this. They were always very quick and helpful for me.

I honestly don't think UK has released 2 editions. I was looking for a double-disc UK edition too, but there isn't any as far as I know. I know there are double-disc versions on Amazon France, Italy and US- which have more extras than this UK single-disc edition. I have bought the French one.

I hope I've made myself clear now.
