I have found details on the region 1 version. Does anyone know a link for a description on the region 2 version?

Ideally I want a comparison between the two and which one is better.
According to and, region 1 is 16:9 anamorphic widescreen. However, list region 2 as being 4:3... hopefully this is just a mistake (region 2 is £5 cheaper).
I took this up with Play and they replied
Hi there Mr Bristow!

Thanks for taking the time to visit us here at

In response to your query, we can confirm that Season 1 of Babylon 5 does
indeed have anamorphic transfers for each of the 22 episodes. We believe the
aspect ratio to be 1.85:1 and have now updated the listing on our R1 page
for this item. Thanks for bringing this matter to our attention and we hope
you feel free to purchase with confidence!

We hope that this may assist to resolve your query and that you'll continue
to drop by for some of the best prices and service for DVDs,
CDs and games!

The Play price seems very competititve. £40 for that much B5 - heaven.
This is what Play say the specs are now:
