Par issues digital ‘Commandments’

Paramount Television has completely restored the classic theatrical “The Ten Commandments,” which airs annually on the Alphabet web on Easter Sunday or Palm Sunday.

Using digital technology, Paramount spent a year restoring the Cecil B. DeMille story of Moses’ exodus from Egypt. The decision to redo the film was made because original elements and sequences had deteriorated in parts of the movie.

ABC, which usually wins the night with its broadcast of the film, has renewed broadcast rights to “The Ten Commandments” through 2009.
