Opening Credits

I believe the Region 1 and 2 versions have different opening credits. What is the difference and are they available on the internet for comparison? --Grafix 08:20, 6 April 2006 (CDT)

If I'm not mistaken, doesn't the Region 2 DVD use the UK theme music (same as the Season 2 music) as opposed to the regular US music? --Talos 11:47, 6 April 2006 (CDT)
That's about it. US theme is a reuse of the "Two Funerals" tack from Season 1, which I actually thought was better than the UK theme song (which I think sounds too upbeat, even though it's supposed to be mournful) because "Two Funerals" sounds like military taps, playing like funeral music for the Fall of the Twelve Colonies seen in the openning credits. Sounds bleaker, which is good, for a bleak, dark-concept show. --The Merovingian (C - E) 14:50, 6 April 2006 (CDT)
For clarification, do you know the title of the UK theme song? I can't remember for the life of me what our theme song sounds like --Madbrood 13:28, 13 September 2006 (CDT)
It's track # 30 on the first season soundtrack. It's just called "Main Title". -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 13:31, 13 September 2006 (CDT)
Yeah, it really has no name. But it's the hindu Gayatri mantra sung in the original Sanskrit --Serenity 13:35, 13 September 2006 (CDT)
Its called Main Title (UK Version) on the Season 1 soundtrack and Battlestar Galactica Season 2 Main Title Music on Season 2 soundtrack. I belive in America they use the UK theme in Season 2 but i could be wrong? Perhaps a yank can confirm this? --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 13:42, 13 September 2006 (CDT)
"Two Funerals" was only ever used in the US for the Season 1 television broadcast. Even on DVD it was replaced by the UK Theme --Serenity 13:44, 13 September 2006 (CDT)
... with the exception of the DVD that was released in Best Buy stores prior to the major release of the Season 1 DVD boxset. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 14:31, 13 September 2006 (CDT)
Oh, THAT.... guys, hate to break it to you, but our theme music = win ;) --Madbrood 13:15, 14 September 2006 (CDT)
The Best Buy version of the S1 DVDs has the UK theme. The regular set has the US theme. --Talos 13:42, 14 September 2006 (CDT)
BTW, I prefer the US song, the remix of "Two Funerals," the UK song feels too upbeat. Also, there is a difference in the second half of the UK theme on the S1 OST and the Theme on the S2 OST. The drum/Space 1999 section in different. --Talos 13:44, 14 September 2006 (CDT)

Another UK DVD?

I just got an e-mail from a user who sent me this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000HN31HO/. It's apparently a R2 DVD with 10 episodes from Season 1, which doesn't seem quite right to me. Maybe it's an error, but I though I'd post it here, so that we can make better sense of it. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 00:10, 23 October 2006 (CDT)

I also saw this on amazon a little while ago, however I have not seen a copy of this DVD in a store to actually see myself. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 02:54, 23 October 2006 (CDT)
