Dangerous Days: On the Edge of Blade Runner

This documentary was shown on BBC a few nights ago and I thought it would be of interest to some Sci-Fi fans. It's just under 100 minutes long and whilst I didn't watch the whole thing when it was on, what I did see of it was very detailed and interesting and I recorded it on Sky+ to watch when I have time. It's available on iPlayer until Monday night at the following link:

I noticed they showed the film a few nights ago and was cursing myself for not watching it (odd the things you still watch on normal TV even though you have the DVDs). Good shout, I'll be sure to pick this up on iPlayer.

For the real indulgent Blade Runner superfan experience you need to see the full 213 minute (3.5hr ) version of the documentary that came with the Final Cut.

An epic documentary for an epic film.

Well worth it, especially for the stuff about the SFX. A true high water mark in miniature/matte painting/in-camera work.

I really should watch Blade Runner some day soon, it's been on my 'to watch' list for about 25 years but I'm pretty sure I've never seen it from start to finish, despite owning the fancy DVD boxset.

The film itself (though I'm not sure which cut, original theatrical or otherwise) is also on iPlayer until Sunday night/Monday morning which I thought was a pretty cool touch from the BBC.

When you say the final cut, do you mean the special collectors edition steel book? Because whilst I have it, I don't think I've seen everything that came with it, and was certainly not aware that it contained a 3.5 hour documentary!
