So not a PSB appearance, but a very(!) quick and unexpected PSB mention.

Bill Burr being interviewed by Richard Herring and the conversation got around to talking about areas of London/New York that are considered trendy/trashy.

Five new 'HD remastered' videos posted on the official channel. Unfortunately they're just poor AI upscales of the SD masters. They should have gone back to the negatives and rescanned them properly.

"Negatives" only exist for movies shooted on "film"..not on "video". Most (if not all) of the classic PSB videos were filmed and/or edited on video..so they`ll never have the chance to exist in actual HD... because copies of the final video on "film" never existed.

The only two exceptions are "Liberation" (made in HD for IMAX) and "Always On My mind" (wich is a montage of the PSB movie shots).
This is not my signature.

However, the rushes could have been archived and the videos rebuilt. Expensive but possible.

Whilst I don't know if most PSB videos were edited on videotape, the majority of them were definitely shot on film. You can see the difference in quality between film and video really easily (especially back in the 80s and 90s). If they have the original film rushes they could be rescanned in 1080p HD quality. Of course, this process is expensive, and would also require all the shots used in the original version to be identified and correctly edited back together. Much cheaper to upscale a standard definition version. Such a shame.

If this is an indication of an upcoming Blu-ray release of all their promo videos, it's such a waste, and basically a marketing ploy to get more money out of people who won't notice the difference, or be tricked into thinking it's better quality just because of the "HD" tag. (Of course, technically, going by the number of pixels on display, it is "HD", but the source material definitely isn't)
