Read Darren Amner's film review of Z Channel: A Magnificent Obsession

The extras are a collection of great anecdotes and contributions from all involved or inspired by the Z Channel. One particularly amusing tale concerns a meeting between Federico Fellini and Sam Peckinpah. There is also an On The Film Scene segment highlighting just some of the famous faces who chose to appear on the channel to talk about their work.

A commentary by the director captures her passion for the project and her fond memories of the channel. We also get a 30-minute radio interview with Jerry Harvey recorded in the early Eighties which rounds this package off quite nicely.
