The World at War Specials running times

Where rejected requests go to die.
Seriously though, we're open to discussion; but read the stickied thread first to avoid a premature termination of the conversation.

If your request was denied or your listing was removed without explanation, now would be a good time to review these sections, as it likely ran afoul of them.

If you feel the application of a policy is unfair, please open a Policy Inquiry, with the understanding that administrators (red names) set the policies and moderators (green names) must enforce them within reasonable degrees of latitude.

Due to the egregious nature of the vast majority of requests pertaining to The Bible and The Lost Room, they will immediately be moved here. Further rejection of the rules and volunteer efforts to remedy the situation will be met with thread and series locks, as well as forums bans as necessary.

Every episode is given a running time of 60 minutes, but these do not apply to the specials, where the running times vary from 23 minutes to 123 minutes! Could the times be changed somehow to match the list I compiled from the UK DVD release?

We can't set running times at the episode level.

That's a shame, simply because when this information is linked with Trakt, it looks like the short specials are over twice as long, and the longer ones are much shorter, in one case half the length.
