    Question The name for such a sequence or special, please...

    Hi all,
    I'd be much thankful if you could kindly give me the right word or expression I'm looking for. (Especially in BrE).

    At the end of some series, or way after the release of a famous film, there's usually an amusing special in which interesting backstage things about the series are revealed. This usually includes short talks with the cast and the backstage staff, some scenes including mistakes (bloopers! AmE?!) the actors or actresses make while playing, or any other interesting thing going on during a shot. Hope I can get the right word. This could also be a part of the 'credit sequence' if I'm right.


    Many thanks!

    I forgot to say that at times some out-takes might be squeezed in as well, making it much more interesting!

    They usually list this as a "behind the scenes" or "making of."

    Thanks! Could the latter make an adjective? (By ading a hyphen, perhaps?)
