It does remind me of the original Doctor Who DVD releases. The team behind those makes all sorts of mastering mistakes even to this day, but re-issues are rare (not impossible, but definitely rare), and some of the errors they've made are glaring. The BBC's quality control of those releases has been virtually non-existent. VHS might be an old and infinitely inferior technology, but one thing I'm glad of for being a 'collector' is that I still have all those old copies from before the remasters started chopping things up. It's easy enough to watch an 'as broadcast' version if needed.
