You're very welcome, i've a huge dvd collection bit of an obsession really lol that site has saved me hundreds comparing prices over the last couple of years, always on the look out for promotional codes aswell that helps. Really glad i could help Oh and just another tip Sainsburys Entertainment isn't on there but they're also worth a look especially for pre-order titles use them too lol.

Shame it's not the BR like some people got a while ago dirt cheap
Lots of purists prefer the original DVD boxset as it has the original aspect ratio video - unlike the [sometimes very poorly] pan and scanned 16:9 version on the 'remastered' sets.

amazon.co.uk/Wor…1-2 [just check some of the pricing! oO ]

Personally I have all three versions Remastered both DVD and Bluray plus the earlier one as above...

Crumbs, that's a high price! Would anyone seriously pay that, since I've a still-sealed set (of the original box set) sitting on my shelf that will, in all honesty, never get watched...

Someone on ebay paid 50 quid for a set, not wuite the 100+ they are asking for on Amazon though...

Thats all going to stop in April next year though !! No more cheap DVDs through the channel Islands.

Remember watching this as a kid in the 70's an amazing piece of history documentation even if play is cheaper £20 is well worth it Voted hot

So the claim that over 6 millions Jews died during the war is a hoax?

Its not always about the Jews you know.....

Some scholars maintain that the definition of the Holocaust should also include the other victims persecuted and killed by the Nazis. Using this definition, the total number of Holocaust victims is between 11 million and 17 million people.

Being Jewish and being associated with a geopolitical entity are not mutually exclusive.

Respect. Very evocative music; that title sequence always sends a chill down my spine.
I'm watching this at the moment. Its brilliant and totally recomended. Sure someone will show up on here saying something about the aspect ratio as usual, but trust me - it doesnt matter

Obviously didnt see post number 1...
A great series, the Olivier naration is worth twic this much, never mind the music and the black and white movie clips . I think that some of the sound effects were added afterwards as some original footage did not have sound.
Got this from Zavvi when last on sale - £12 or something - I really DO need to watch it.
