Even though Follyfoot is coming to DVD, in reality the official copies may not be much better than the unofficial ones.
I say that, because I also own another Network DVD release - Upstairs, Downstairs. Several episodes have been cut, due to the fact that the master copies have suffered damage. You do have to remember that any VHS tape will deteriorate, and even then it all depends on the state of Yorkshire TV's (or whatever they like to call themselves these days) archives in the first place (I suppose in the 70s nobody bothered about keeping the air temperature right) on how they survive to the present day. Due to the tape damage on the original copies of Upstairs Downstairs, these have been cut from the DVD release.
Even though Upstairs Downstairs claims to be "digitally remastered" (I dont think we have any evidence to support at the moment that Follyfoot is, though I suspect as they have taken the trouble to do that with the other Yorkshire TV horse programme "Flambards" they have done that. "Flambards" is also a Network release), there is still a lot of quality issues regarding sound and picture. According to Updown.org even foreign editions retain better quality than Network's release.
Because of that, I think that there will be some edits when compared to an 1980s home recording, but until someone here will compare it with an "unofficial" copy, we wont know.
But at least it could be worse........it could be junked. Maybe Series 2 and 3 have been junked too (or part of it, could explain why not the whole of series 3 was repeated in the 1980s), but hopefully not.
