Are Bogle's commentaries available for viewing?

I have been enjoying Mr. Bogle's pre & post movie commentaries and am wondering if tcm.com has a compilation of these commentaries somewhere on the site. From what I can tell there is none but maybe I am missing it.

 

I really wanted to catch the post-Shaft, pre-Superfly commentaries but fell asleep. Thanks

Sorry to hear that, jay. I missed them too! I was unable to find his pre-Shaft and pre-Superfly video introductions, but clips, trailers and some of Mr. Bogle's talks are here:

You can get more information and see Richard Roundtree talk about Shaft here:

And you can read what Mr. Bogle had to say about Shaft:

I try to tape most of the special intro's and wrap-ups that appeal to me as I know they will never be repeated. (The monthly guest programmers for example.)

 

The comments Robert Osborne offers before and after the films are generally rewritten to reflect the theme for each showing. So while pretty much the same they do differ somewhat.

 

Wish I had the foresight to get more of the Essential Intros and Wraps from years past.

 

Like the intros and wrap-ups done by the monthly guest programmers I doubt very highly the Osborne - Bogle intros and wraps will ever be aired again. Fortunately I have all that aired thus far. They are time capsules that, unlike the movies we see on TCM, seem to disappear into the ether!

I should have done this as well. I'm a fan of New York City filmed blaxploitation, Shaft and Superfly are the definitive films of that genre. I wished I would have had the foresight to tape the pre/post commentaries.
