Notes: "This new high-definition transfer was created from a 35mm interpositive scanned in 2K resolution on a Spirit Datacine 4K machine at Midnight Transfer, London. 2K color correction was done using Assimilate's Scratch system, and dirt and scratch removal was done using Pixel Farm's PFClean system at Cinelmage, London. This corrected data was output to high-definition tape at On Sight, London. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction."

Telecine supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Telecine colorist: Fergus Hally/Cinelmage, London.

"The soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the 35mm Dolby LT/RT magnetic audio track at Sync Sound Audio, London. Pops, cracks, hiss, and hum were reduced with an array of audio restoration techniques."
