From everything I have read this is not true HD, it's just the standard def whacked onto a blu-ray disc. The series was filmed on 16mm film (to give it an old fashioned look), the post effects were processed at standard def and apparantly it would be too expensive to go back and remaster the footage.

The frame rate has been changed from 25fps to 24fps to support blu-ray true cinema hd, so to anybody with a TV that doesn't support it, you will now get a slight judder on any panning shots.

Hmmm... Agreed, not much point in Blu-Ray then really if it's not true HD. You may as well just buy the DVD's for £10.93 and put them through a HDMI DVD player. Shame really.

This should have to be plastered on the front of the box. Totally unfair they try to sell standard def footage on a High def media.

Trade descriptions act?

I was going to say that surely Hi def would take away the 1970's feel and look.

I only became a fan when the BBC ran the repeats on BBC4 a few months ago. I was gutted that they didn't show Season 2 immediately after as i'm totally addicted.

If anyone sees a bargain on the standard DVD let me know so I can find out what happens!

The word is this is half way between DVD quality and what might be expected of 1080p blu ray. They transferred from 16mm, but didn't redo things totally (as was the case with the Pride and Prejudice Blu Ray). They also went from 25fps to 1080p24, so its longer/slower.

Expect grain and a certain softness.
