    Just come across this on change.org
    But only has a few signatures
    Petitioning the BBC to release original uncut versions

  2. Michael says:

    If you search vimeo for Only Fools and Horses you can find Uncut versions of:
    A Royal Flush
    Tea For Three
    Yuppy Love

    A guy called Calvin Hall even uploaded the Educational episode, Licensed To Drill (a lost episode… Ish), Christmas Trees, a short bad quality episode from back with Leonard Pierce and a scene from White Mice (another lost Ep), but not the full Ep for that unfortunately…

    On Vimeo you can download the videos straight from the site, so I burned them on DVD using ConvertextoDVD4 and placed them nicely in my Box Set.

    I was really shocked by just how terrible A Royal Flush actually is in my boxset, it barely makes any sense, im glad I now own the Uncut version.

    Still cant find The Jolly Boys Outing uncut anywhere, anyone know where to find it!?, its one of my favourite Ep’s

    • Calvin says:

      I’m the guy who uploaded these, i’m uploading Jolly Boys Outing as we speak. :)

    • Karlos says:

      Jolly boy’s outing outtakes were due to legal standing of the tune played when del and Rodney were in the club. Is a great lost scene but very hard to find now. The outtakes from tea for three are even better,uncle Albert singing in the talent contest is a scene I can’t believe was cut

    Hi There
    I have recently been working very hard to obtain all episodes of OFAH completely uncut with all scenes ever recorded and all of the original music tracks. I have successfully succeeded but I need to obtain the original broadcast versions of Class of 62 and A losing Streak in order to get the original dialogues of Del & Triggers line PROVO & PRAT. Other than these two dubbed scenes, I have every episode completely uncut. I would love to share the uncut scenes here if I’m allowed in one video clip. I have even edited the original theme tunes into series 1 (something I’m extremely proud of). Can anyone help me out?

    I have just been looking through Netflix and see that they’ve added more episodes to OFAH, it’s all the specials and thank god they’re uncut. The one’s I have tested so far are Jolly Boys Outing and Miami Twice Part 1 & 2.
    These are both fully uncut and not missing any lines and also Miami Twice is in 2 parts as originally was.

    As far as I know it is just the specials that are uncut and they at the moment only have Season 1, 2 and the specials. I am checking out more of the specials now to see if they are all uncut but if they are, this could be very good news and we could have all the uncut versions of each episode re-released on DVD or on demand.

    Thanks for reading :)

      I have just watched ‘Oh to be in England’ on Netflix. Unfortunately its not fully uncut. bizarrely it has the missing DVD scenes, but for some reason the conversation with Del and Rodney on the plane is heavily cut. Also when you first meet ‘Don o’ketty’ there is a small cut.

  5. Ronnie says:

    There is a new site called the BBC store.

    It has Jolly boys uncut.

      Not all the episodes are uncut for example

      yuppy love is the same as the dvd version also watching the girls go by is cut in different places to the dvd version

      • calvin says:

        i purchased watching the girls go by from the itunes store after watching it on DVD and i have found no problems watching it it seems fully uncut and intact

        • Lee says:

          It has the scene with Yvonne singing and the missing dialog ‘A couple of em are dead’ when Del is talking to Albert, but there is some dialog missing when they’re sat around the dinner table talking about ‘Big Brenda and her being Southern area shot-put champion.

          Don’t understand why they cut it out as this is in the DVD version..

  7. Gez says:

    The word chinky was cut from an episode of ofandh

  8. Robin says:

    apparently there is 20 mins worth of unseen footage from If they could see us how episode. Wouldn’t this be a great dvd extra ! I would love to see what episode was like has this been left in.

  9. Rob M says:

    GOLD on sky digital are getting worse with the OFAH cuts.

    I used to like the fact that you could always rely on GOLD to get the missing scenes, but GOLD are now slowly hacking the episodes aswell.

    GOLD have now removed the club scene from yuppy love, they have also removed the part where Vonnie sings in watching the girls go by, and Del replied with ‘stone me, Vonnie that was my bloody earhole’

  10. Rob M says:

    I think the reason tea for three was cut, was to stop the episode from over-running, but I could be wrong?

    it’s not so much the TV broadcasts on GOLD, it’s the DVD/video releases of this episode which is hacked to pieces.

  11. Griff says:

    Watching the Fools faveourites on GOLD just now, and Sir David Jason himself bemoans the fact they cut some of his dialogue in Tea for Three whereby he said the speech he gives when he arrives back at the flat was pure gold, but half of it was cut.

    For fucks sakes, BBC. Utterly clueless gimps who run that corporation.

  13. Dawud Bryant says:

    any chance someone on here has the i tunes versions and can upload them?

  14. Leighton says:

    Hi, I’ve been watching ofah in the afternoons(lack of work) and have clearly forgot how funny the gang was, anyway I wanted to relive them moments from childhood and get the box set, BUT after reading what’s been going on with the edits on the DVDs …don’t really feel like paying for something and not getting it all, so I thought I’d go down the VHS route as these might not be so edited.. Does anyone know what state of edit the VHS tapes might be in.
    Thank you, Lates

  15. tim says:

    The us dvds of series 1 to 3 are cut still witch is anoying so im starting to make fan made uncut versions my self with regards to music and cerurn dubing

  16. Ronnie says:

    According to another only fools fan, I-Tune versions are also cut but not in the same place as the DVD’s, The mystery continues.

  17. Trig says:

    This is a great article
    Cant wait for next week now

  18. Daniel says:

    in the episode stage fright last week there were some cuts, but that was probably due to air time.

    what annoys me is episodes like maimi twice,jolly boys outing and a royal flush – especially a royal flush, i have the 2004 rerelease and it is a joke – there have been nearly 20 minutes removed because john sullivan felt the episode cast del in a bad light.

    why wait 20 years to edit something which true fans have seen anyway. also in the episode when rodney buys a programme they cut the bit out when rodney reacts to the price of £8.

    i feel viewers are not so stupid to remember that this show was filmed 20 years ago. and in those days £8 was a lot of money.

    • Ben says:

      Mate I was watching that tonight so annoying. And a lot of when they’re sat down and deal says I’ll come down there and punch you in a minute when they ssshhhhhhh

  19. Del says:

    I did not know that Life On Mars was cut on the DVD’s…this is surprising..

    I think the biggest cut I have noticed for OFAH is “Tea for Three” which has cuts right from the start – such as Albert singing Ada…and a whole conversation at the “tea” table….which I could never understand why it was cut.

  20. Mohammed says:


    Its good that I have most of the OFAH episodes taped, but having purchased certain vhs and dvsa with cuts, I will no longer purchase until I can obtain the orginal versions

  21. Mohammed says:

    Thank you, some brilliant articles on the website.

    The BBc have certainly let many fans down with this countless editing, we want the originals and are willing to pay.
