Avoid if you mind having chopped frames for the sake of widescreen. They need to reissue in 4:3, as for once, this is justifiable to maintain overall presentation.
A fantastic series though
Great find!

nice! Thanks for posting!
Watched every episode (in its original 4:3 presentation) recently through Iplayer, and this still remains my favourite WW2 documentary series, even though there have been many others since.
Good price, don't like the chopping of the frames though, heat

It's believed a new 4:3 edition is forthcoming as a result of the Fremantle deal and this is why this 16:9 edition is in Network's Clearance Shop.
