Episode 13...For some countries a special number!?
A little talk about "time" today reminded me to this great animated show.
Was very, very happy to find all episodes on Youtube, loved it as a child.
Then read on Wikipedia that the 13th episode was shortened for germany to 13 mins.
The episodes are anyhow short with around 26 mins but it's true!
Es war einmal... der Mensch, Episode 13. Der Hundertjährige Krieg (12.57 mins)
How profound: Episode 13 with 13 mins
Checked on the english version, only 11 mins ??!!
Once Upon a Time... Man, Episode 13. The Hundred Years' War (10.55 mins)
Now tried to get the french original and found it in the full length.
Il était une fois... l'Homme, Episode 13. La Guerre de Cent Ans (25.54 mins)
Behind this link all 26 original french episodes...for people with the right nationality.
For me only the common message "This video is not available in your country."
Germany, the valley of darkness and silence.
What happened to the Youtube - unblocker?!
Probably a victim of the last browser update, need to check on that *mumble*
The next site showed the same message...cause the video is linked to Youtube:
http://www.inexplique-endebat.com/article-la-guerre-de-cent-ans-il-eta it-une-fois-l-homme-dessin-anime-sur-l-histoire-ancienne-76708977-comm ents.html
And here a little variation:
http://dessinsanime.com/video/IzYk2T13779/Il-%C3%A9tait-une-fois-l8217 Homme-Episode-13-La%C2%A0Guerre-de-Cent-Ans "The requested video is not allowed to be played in embedded players."
So, now have the right motivation to get me every hacker-software available.
Who plays this almighty censor?!
Don't need an explanation what the GEMA is, wrote recently a longer post about it.
Anyhow, a totally blocked video by GEMA is not a shortened video.
What did they cut out?!
