Letterboxed BD or DVD of older TV movies

Till around 2001 or so, majority of Made-for-TV films were in the Fullscreen 4:3 aspect ratio. Some of those were ‘letterboxed’ into widescreen for Cinema release and are available on BD or DVD in the latter format.

Is there list of such releases? I know of only 3 - Duel, Starflight One and The Day After

IT was originally letterboxed for DVD but the bluray is the original 4:3 ratio.

Thanks both. I ordered the 30th Anniversary edition BD of The Snowman.

By "IT" did you mean the 1990 TV mini-series? I have not seen it. Is it good and how does it compare with the more recent feature film?
