For the first time I've just watched the first episode of The Mini-killers on the special features disc. Very strange! No dialogue and virtually plotless. I can't find The Diadem on any of the Avengers dvd box sets. This was a 13 minute b/w German short film. Does anyone know if this is on any of the dvd's as a bonus. The shorter colour version called The golden schlussel is on the special features disc, but I can't locate the longer b/w one. Does anyone know anything at all about these short films? I wonder why Diana made these strange shorts. What market were they aimed at? As they are 8mm films I presume they were made for the home movie market.

It's a easter egg on the Season 4 box set but I can't remember what disc it is on, also there is another easter egg on the same set too called London Line. Just move up and down and left and right on the menus and you will find both very easy.

No problem and sorry I couldn't remember the disc numbers but I think it's on the same disc as the colour film.

Found it! It's on disc 7. What's the London line you mentioned Noel?

It's a short behinds the scenes film about Return of The Cybernauts so I think it may be on the disc that has The Cybernauts episode on it. If it's not on that disc it will be on one of the other discs in the Season 4 set. They really should have put it on the Season 5 box set but there you go. Find it the same way as you did with the other easter egg.

You found the second one then, if you get the blu rays in the future they are on the extras as normal.

Hopefully you can get a player that plays the UK ones for you.

yup, that's the work-a-round...I'll have to pony up long green, for a all regions dvd player...thinking about the mini killers, etc....if memory served me right, weren't they originally 8mm film(s) shot in Germany ?
