They combined cut-out images from the "Introduction" video with excerpts from the album and you can hear a Dutch speaking voice-over saying something like "the classic album from Mike Oldfield re-recorded".

Yeah... the last commercial I remember was from TBII, I think... or was it just the videoclip from Sentinel?

The last TV-ad I remember being shown in Holland is the one for Mike Oldfield's Wonderland in 1981.....

I've got the TV advert for TSODE on video somewhere, it was the big exploding sun sequence from the CDROM, looked much better on TV. 'Oh for the days when WEA cared about Mike.

HI

       Here in Spain we can see now a TB 2003 commercial,where a bit of the Introduction cilp is shown,while you can hear the music of Introduction DVD version.
             But I don't like this TV advertising,because it seems IMHO that it has has been done for selling  a "Tubular Bells Remix 2003"  album  by "DJ Olfield"... :/
             OK, I know a commercial is done to sell a product, but I thing they are giving a wrong idea of TB 2003.

I guess every Oldfield-fan would love to live in Spain. Oldfield really seems to be very populair there.
What is the difference between the DVD-version of TB2003's Introduction and the original version?
