Incredibly overpriced compilation- is all the money going into the rights of the video licensing?

Are Human League box set that doesn't contain SECONDS?! :(

If 3:47 is the correct duration for "Only After Dark", then it's not the single edit (which is about 3:15). Looks like the album version is on here. Another mistake on a re-issue. Surprise :P

Any owners wish to comment on the quality of the DVD? 45 video tracks seems like quite a lot, are there any compression artifact issues?
