Easter Eggs

Just wondering, does anyone include instructions on finding Easter eggs on DVDs in their catalog records? For those who have not heard of Easter eggs, they are hidden extras. For example here are instructions to find them on Doctor Who - The Tomb of the Cybermen
  • From the Audio Options page within Special Features, press the left direction button to highlight the 'Doctor Who' logo. You can now access an audio trailer for the next transmitted story, 'The Abominable Snowmen'
  • From the top of the main menu, press the up direction button to highlight the 'Doctor Who' logo. You will access an extended title sequence
  • From the top of the main menu, press the up direction button to highlight the 'Doctor Who' logo. Now press the right direction button so that a Cyberman head symbol appears. Then press the left direction button so that the Doctor's head is circled in green. You can now access a surviving sequence of the story taken from video rather than the film prints
Tracking them all down and making sure the instructions are correct would be a burden but some users might find such information of value. The examples were taken from The Easter Egg Archive
