What are the special features on the Theatrical edition DVD’s like? And a couple of related questions Can't Post

Being one of those weirdo’s who could happily sit for ages watching Making Of’s (Currently working my way through the Alien Antholgy’s) and other extras, I was wondering whether it was worth buying the Theatrical cut’s (which I haven’t seen since I upgraded from VHS to extended Dvd box set six or seven years ago) for the extras-I gather they aren’t particularly interesting, but I can buy the trilogy for a fiver (perhaps less) second hand so I was wondering if anyone could fill me in on which special features are included.


On three side notes:
1) Are the Costa Botes Documentaries (which I haven’t seen…are they on youtube?) and theatrical edition extras included with the LOTR Extended Blu Ray set? I’ve got a blu ray player but I don’t want to make the leap unless everything is included (especially since PJ is already talking about new stuff for the lotr and hobbit ‘big box set’ for 2015)- one of the reason I didn’t bother with the star wars box set.


2) Do the theatrical cuts include things not in the extended cuts? I vaguely remember a different opening to Lothlorien, but I really can’t remember anything else…(I hope they include both versions in the big box set)


3) Could Born of Hope and the Hunt for Gollum be included in this future big box set? (Only seen a few minutes of each) or would this infringe copyright?


‘As they came to the gates Cirdan the Shipwright came forth to greet them. Very tall he was, and his beard was long, and we was grey and old, save that his eyes were keen as stars; and he looked at them and bowed, and said ‘All is now ready.’

Perhaps the most fascinating Individual in Middle Earth
