DVD Set 2

(Vintage Films / Bridge Entertainment / VRT)

Kapitein Zeppos DVD Set 1This DVD/VHS set contains the Kapitein Zeppos serial Belderbos from 1964. There are three discs / video tapes in the respective sets, each containing 5 episodes.

The prints look good, and represent an improvement over recent VRT repeats. There are occasionally minor film jumps, though these are to be expected in a programme of this age.

The first disc in the DVD set also contains several interesting extra features. To begin with, there is the short film, Kurrel and Co., a colour videotaped follow-up to Kapitein Zeppos, featuring Senne Rouffaer in a cameo role. The programme was made as a college project in 1999 by Ludovic Beun. There is also an interview with Senne Rouffaer, taken from the VRT talk show, Nieuwe maandag (New Monday). Next there is a report from the Kapitein Zeppos Café in Amsterdam taken from the series, Ben en de Belgen (Ben and the Belgians), in which the show's host, Ben Crabbé chats with the café's proprietor, Bob van Buren. Additionally, there is a feature originally shown as part of De Rode Loper (The Red Carpet Strip), a showbiz programme transmitted daily on VRT after the 6.00pm news. The item focuses on Kapitein Zeppos actor Senne Rouffaer on a school visit. The VHS edition features none of these extra features.
