Edition: US US (VHS)
Title:  Myth Makers Vol. 7: Myth Runner - The Best and the Worst of Myth Makers
Released:  January 1989
Publisher:  Pleiades Home Entertainment

Note:  This was the seventh of 17 Myth Makers videos released in the US, which confusingly followed a different numbering scheme to the original British releases (typified by this release — since in the UK, Myth Runner wasn't even part of the numbered Myth Makers series). Preceded by Volume 6: Sarah Sutton / Peter Grimwade and followed by Volume 8: Tom Baker.

Cover blurb:
It is the future.

Celebrity interviews have been banned.

Some one is killing DOCTOR WHO stars by subjecting them to interviews so insidious, so inane that only Nicholas Briggs, the MYTH RUNNER, can stop him.

Will Briggs stop the host from hell?

Can the stars stomach the stupidity?

Is Nick Briggs really a 'balding git'?

Find out in MYTH RUNNER, the best and worst of the MYTH MAKERS series. Out takes and new footage of your favorite 'DOCTOR WHO' stars makes this a collector's item not to be missed!

Edition: UK UK (DVD)
Title:  The Myth Runner Tapes
Released:  February 2005
Publisher:  Reeltime Pictures
Format: 1 x DVD
Owned:
Buy:eBay

Note:  Regions 2 & 4 DVD-R disc. Extended DVD re-release containing the original documentary, plus a collection of the "Myth Runner" segments originally featured on the early releases in the Myth Makers interview range.

Cover blurb:
Together for the first time on one DVD Video, here are all The Myth Runner Tapes produced as 'B' features for MYTH MAKERS interviews in the 1990s together with the original MYTH RUNNER The Best and Worst of Myth Makers documentary released in 1987.

Loosely linked by Nicholas Briggs's portrayal of The Myth Runner (an exact robot double of said Mr. Briggs), here are some of the best and worst moments in Myth Makers history... plus some of the most hysterical and embarrassing 'shorts' you've ever seen.

Utterly anarchic and pointless... why buy it? Frankly we have no idea — but it might be fun listening to us trying to explain it all!
