  Poor transfer

| | See all dickiep's reviews (137)

This is about the blu-ray Transfer and not the programme which is defiantly the best version of Jane Austins book. So why is the picture a bit grainy, this was shot at a time when the BBC used 16mm film only and therefore you will not get the quality of a transfer from a 35mm film. yes there is an improvement from the original version, but not a great deal, however the price is pretty good. The sound has been remixed to 5.1 but not a patch on knew serials like Doctor who. The BBC have coincidently said they will never show any 16mm film claiming it was Hi definition, so I think you have your answer from the makers of the programme. hope this helps when considering the purchase.

This is a fantastic transfer of series that's now 15 years old. I do wonder whether other reviewers understand why films have grain, especially those filmed prior to to high definition digital camera. The age of the series means it will always have grain and attempts to reduce it would lead to a loss in detail. In any case as shown by the featurette on the transfer there is a huge improvement in the quality of the picture in detail and colour from all previous releases and even better that the original broadcast. An absolute must buy for fans!

  O! yes Mr Darcey

I have watched this on dvd a few times but the blu-ray version excels as it brings
out the details of the costumes, jewels and wall papers and makes the watching a new experience
This along with chance to enjoy anew alison steadman's mrs bennett, fluttering in lace and feathers

Excellent value version of this classic adaptation
