If you havn't seen these mini-series on TV, or even if you have, I would recommend them. You can get them for a song on Region 1 from somewhere like DVD Pacific ($13.06 each). Given an average running time of about 4.5 hours each, this is incredible value. The first is a bit stagey and effects aren't blockbuster standard, but it catches the mood of the book very well and I think it is far more absorbing than the David Lynch's version. The production of Children of Dune is better. If you need an R2 version, check the Dutch sites, but beware, there are cheap versions which are letterbox format with Dolby 2.0 soundtrack. Anamorphic 5.1 R2 versions exist, but are in shorter supply. Of course, you could always pay £30 - £40 each and order them in the UK.
