    Guys,

    I'm looking for the Ken Burns epic (5 discs I believe) R1 and wondered if anyone had bought it? I noticed there is a 3 disc version available on R2 and wondered what the difference would be.

    If anyone knows of any good deals at the moment please let me know, Movietyme don't list it unfortunately so I'd have to take a risk buying from a R1 e-tailer :-(.

    Thanks

    Even if you aren't a huge fan of the sport, his History of Baseball is excellent, as well - 10 DVD's, mind.

    I'm not a fan of Baseball, but have considered getting this as I'm interested in 20th century American history.I assume it also covers social/racial changes over the history of the game too?

    I have the five disc R1 and I think the main difference is the interviews and commentary are not present on the R2.

    The interviews are with Burns, Shelby Foote and others, probably about an hours worth all told. The Commentary is split accross the series and dips in and out, but Burns is always informative.

    Cheers
