Has anyone run across a share of this PBS concert special that ran in June?

It's streaming on PBS if you have a passport account with them. I just gave them $5 and then cancelled after I was done watching.

I wouldn't say it's "high definition" but they've definitely cleaned up the footage and fixed the color and overexposure issues.

Someone'll share eventually? /shrug

I thought it was a different show than the DVD?

Haven't watched the DVD in ages. But the comparison pictures point towards a good cleaning and upscaling job.
Would love a copy of the pbs version

from the screenshots, it looks like they just tweaked the brightness and contrast a little.

It's the same show as the one on the VHS/DVD (the HBO special). I was hoping maybe they found some additional footage and restored that as well but it still rolls credits at the end of Fame. ;__;

They fixed a lot of the overexposure issues caused by the lighting, it's why the color looks more saturated. They also cleaned up the edges of the film. Here's another comparison set:

Ah now i see it. Looks like a fresh transfer.

I wonder if the unused songs still exist. They probably do, but fat chance we'll ever see them.

We need Blu-Ray releases now, why can't the estate see this with the complete shows with a show from each tour, they must have them.

Exactly.  Besides from the upcoming Moonage Daydream, where is Bowie in HD?  Maybe they were waiting until after this comes out?  After going through the archives, they must have a very good idea of what assets they have to release in HD.

Warner Chappell Music now owns the global music publishing rights to Bowie's catalog. It was sold by the Bowie estate this past January.

There are sure to be clauses in that sale set by the Bowie estate.
