Comments:

Although this looks to have been a 'made for TV' series the image quality is superior than those usual transfers. There is a degree of softness and washed-out colors but there are moments of strong clarity and I suspect it was converted progressively. Audio is clear and consistent and they have even included optional subtitles. To follow along with the adventure there is quite a substantial 22-page booklet included. Let me tell you, this is an amazing viewing experience that ends quite rewardingly. I wish I could tell you that it reminded me of something, but I draw a blank, so I guess add 'unique' to my list of adjectives. Thanks to BFI for bringing this to us! out of
