PictureFilmed on digital video the picture is best described as broadcast quality with a nice sharpness and clean look. Colours are rich and well saturated and flesh tones appear natural. The backgrounds of famous London settings look detailed with just a few problems like dot crawl and edge enhancement seen, overall this is a good quality video transfer.
SoundPresented in Dolby 2.0 stereo, the soundtrack is not asked to do that much to be honest. Dialogue is intelligible and warm with music using the surrounds in Prologic II to good effect. Overall the sound mix is workman like and suits the source material.
ExtrasThe 26 minute Making Of featurette is just as fascinating as the main feature. We are shown the various steps the crew had to take to get the footage and the equipment used. We are also informed about the Health and safety aspects of the shoot and the injuries that some of the team suffered. Also included are multi angle features and a director commentary.
VerdictA fascinating documentary on a growing sport with good DVD presentation and worthy of at least one viewing.
