DVD Review: The World at War, by Fremantle Home Entertainment

The World at War: The Ultimate Restored Edition, by Fremantle Home Entertainment, London, 2012, $69.99 (Blu-ray)

First broadcast in October 1973, the trendsetting BBC series The World at War has been digitally remastered and re-released by London-based Freemantle on Blu-ray and DVD. Narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, it tells the entire story of World War II, and in the 40 years since its original airing it has become a benchmark for documentary filmmakers.

    Have enjoyed the original World at War series many times over, though find the dialogue difficult to comprehend: loss of clarity, narrator speaks quickly (Laurence Olivier, no less) and wondering if this newer version has sharper audio or if a print copy of the narrative dialogue is available.
