The code is for first time orders only, so if you don't want to make another account, Zavvi and The Hut have also just lowered their price to £16.85.

is it true that the transfer is not as good as the original series?

No I don't think so. Apparently a few of the first batch had some contrast issues etc, but all that stock should be gone by now. If you do get a problem they replace it for free - it said somewhere on amazon.

I'd be careful - The cheaper the stock, the more likely it is to be the original cruddy transfer sold off cheap - They never recalled it, so there's plenty floating around.. THey will replace the discs FOC, but seriously, do you want that hassle?

yeah but the stock is not cheap...It's £17.99, which is the same as all other retailers. In-fact, Zavvi and The Hut have reduced the price to £16.85 (which is a good deal in itself). The only reason this is cheap is because the code makes it cheap. The only way to be 100% certain then is to buy the original and not the special edition, but I very much doubt there will be anything wrong.

Ha,ha!! You buzzed too quickly : )
I found this on Amazon,thanx wayne.f

When you receive your copy check the serial numbers which circle the inner ring of the data side of disc 2 and 3, there is a faulty batch.

good batch is:
disc 2
outer: IFPI LY25 A0101728442-A926 1000
inner: IFPI LY24 A0101728442-B926 1000 or IFPI LY24 A0101728442-B926 1000 2A00

disc 3
outer: IFPI LY25 A0101728430-A936 1000
inner: IFPI LY24 A0101728430-B936 1000 or IFPI LY24 A0101728430-B936 1000 3A00

if you do not have these serial numbers you may need to exchange them

Sarcastic much?

You know, it's people like you that stop users on here posting up useful information about poor transfers and shoddy audio.. But you're also the same kind of person that moans when they get a disc that's sub-standard.. Can't have it both ways..

Hi Thanks for this. Great price for this. Have some heat:)
#19
Hello i bought this a few months ago and checked all the scenes in question. It seems BBC have sorted the transfer issues out because my boxset has absolutely no problems and is an absolute pleasure to watch. This is definitely a 100% must have - just in case you are still unsure!
#20
i have the original box set which i bought few months ago and did not watch yet..is it worth selling it and buying this set?

Listen to yourself.................if you want to moan ( using your word) about audio do it on AVforums

First time use only...you can either make a new account, or...as someone has just posted, play.com have the normal edition for £10.99 now (don't know how long for), so maybe get that instead if you don't mind about which edition. oh saw you already have the normal, never mind.

I ordered this on the 19th and finally heard from Sainsbury's this morning -

"We are contacting you with an update about the following item from your recent order from Sainsbury's Entertainment:

#0 "Planet Earth - Special Edition"
Film; £14.39

We're very sorry but, this item has gone out of stock. We are doing all we can to source additional stock and to get your order to you as quickly as possible."

I have never ordered from them before. does anybody think I have much chance of getting this now?
