There's an alternate eight minute recording on a VHS tape sent to me years ago by a person with the initials 'RL.' It's shot with a different camera and is a recording of an unnamed TV broadcast. The interview is interspersed with bits of video and stills relating to Dylan's career and his 1986 True Confessions Tour. I've never seen this on a DVD, although there's a chance that it's been preserved on one of the many compilation DVDs in the DVDylan catalog.*

This interview is 18 minutes of 1986 contemplative and relaxed Bob during the Australian Tour, it is very enjoyable. The video is very close-shot and steady... although it not pro-shot, the video is all clear of Bob in his myopic hazy blue-eyed glory including the 1986 earring and Miami Vice facial hair and before the expensive dental reconstruction.
Thank you to Brendon Stretch for sharing this on youtube and to jtt for putting it to DVD.
