3.0 out of 5 stars More Than Just Good Friends, 13 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Just Good Friends: The Complete Series 1-3 [DVD] (1983) (4-Disc Set) (DVD)
I was pleased when the complete series and Christmas Special came out on DVD having enjoyed it so much the first time round. I was a bit disappointed with the Christmas Special with regard to the dialogue having to be replaced by music and sub titles at the beginning it did spoil it somewhat. Vince did make me laugh though but I must admit Penny was beginning to get on my nerves towards the end. Having purchased a number of complete series of other shows I felt the price of this one to be a bit expensive.

i would of thought all they needed to do was pay the 2 main actors to re dub the scene without the rollong stones

surely that would still be cheaper indeedd had ythey been approsached they may of even said we are proud to do it for free especially if threy ask them now john sullvan has died

so bbc entertainment gwt on to paul nicholls and offer them a fee for re dubbing the scenes ok it wont be perfect but it would be nice to hear there real voices and not the subtitles which spoil the atmosphere

as for rolling stones i woulds charge them in first place

mayber its time to tell the music industry if you want to have your muiscians playing in tv series which they of course do you pay us for it as effectively we are advertising you

this way with just good freiends as example rolling stonesd managements should of got a lettr from bbc stating as your music is in our original production we are re billing you for it as its effectively advertising for you

imo once a track has been played in a porogramme and paid for thats it if used again and shown again then so be it

its a two way thing as said your track in a majore programme being shown or on dvd etc many yrs later is effectivly adverstising said music again so why should you be able to charge program makers massive fees that end up in us the viewr being stuffed as usual

why is it many many programs do have original music depsite it being by major groups it only seems some raise objections or thwere music companies ie prob simon cowell and his ilk
a track placed in a programmes has potential to give later interest in sales

ie someone who may of never got into the stons or hrd of them maybe young and watching said programm and then goes wow i must havfe that track biut of coursae with track taken out the new viewer will never know

I can't follow or understand this owing to the spelling.

I could understand all the misspellings, however the reply rambles so much the point they are trying to make is diluted by the end. I think there was a change a few years ago so actors now get paid for reruns, maybe this has extended to music in reruns and a DVD release is treated the same? It would be interesting to know exactly how much they wanted.

C.G.M. says:
I think when many series were made during this era, producers negotiated for music performance rights for the broadcast, but did not consider the possibility that there might be future releases for home video. The copyright holder gave permission for the broadcast, but not for the home video product. In the US, we've also experienced this problem with several home video releases of television shows which used copyrighted music in some episodes.

I can't say for sure, but I think that producers are more cognizant of the need to obtain rights for music in all future use of the show; and may even prefer to use specifically commissioned music for which they will possess All rights in perpetuity, rather than using the music of a third-party artist. It might be nice to use the music of the Stones or the Beatles or whoever in an episode, but can be a real nuisance when they decide to market the show in some other venue.
