    I don't think so. the subject of SD on BD has it's own thread here.

    Why do you think that? Both were made on broadcast formats that far exceed the resolution of VHS - the quality of FT in particular is very good off the broadcast masters. Or are you just using 'VHS' when you mean 'standard definition'?

    It seems a shame that it wasn't originally telecined to HD - it seems a bit short-sighted in these days of global sales in HD. I guess I'll pick these up when they are under £10, providing they aren't hard coded region B!

    Very glad to hear it! I could have sworn I'd heard somewhere that only VHS copies (or something equivalent quality) remained and the original masters were binned because at the time nobody thought we'd need anything better. Very pleased to be proved wrong :)

    edit- So when's the BD coming out? :D

    So did we confirm - will it play on a US PS3 for example. Are disks Region locked?

    I tested series one disc one on one of my UK and US PS3s - no probs - so region free.

    Sent them back to amazon however as not worth the "upgrade"

    Thanks
