Scorsese’s two-part, 208-minute film first aired on PBS back in 2005. Its main focus is on the period between 1961, when the singer/songwriter first arrived in New York City, and his short-lived retirement prompted by a motorcycle accident five years later. Among the special features (which amount to more than two hours of new footage) are interviews with Scorsese, Dave van Ronk and Liam Clancy; the “Apothecary Scene” from Dylan’s 1996 tour of the UK; a clip of him playing “I Can’t Leave Her Behind” in a Glasgow hotel room that same year; three lithographs of Dylan; and a never-used promotional spot for “Positively 4th St.”
