Let me first say that my family and I visited Edinburgh last October which for my daughter and myself, was our very first time. We found the Scottish people to be the friendliest, kindest, and patient people we have ever met. Edinburgh and Scotland as a whole is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. OK I loved it.
Now about the DVD: First of all what they do not say anywhere is that the aspect ratio is 4:3. It's a bit surprising to see 4:3 in a 2003 production... oh but wait, if you watch the whole DVD you will notice that it was produced in 1994 and NOT in 2003. I could kind of live that but what is not acceptable is that on top of the 4:3 ratio the quality of the footage would not even be acceptable in 1994, or 1970 for that matter. the film is grainy, the colors are inaccurate, faded and washed out, and the sound quality is bad. The whole thing looks like a high school production on a budget of £50.
While in Edinburgh, we did go on the Witchery tour with the current Adam Lyal and it was a complete blast and I would recommend it to any one visiting, but the Adam in this DVD? Well it was kind of sad, BORING, and just plain embarrassing to say the least.
Anyway for anyone coming back from beautiful Edinburgh and Scotland looking for a souvenir - do not buy this DVD, you would be very disappointed if you do. If you haven't been to Edinburgh and are curious - do NOT buy the DVD It would stop you from ever visiting.
To the Edinburgh/Scottish Tourist Board (or whatever it may be called): I recommend you screen this DVD and make your own mind up as to whether or not this DVD is a good representation of your fantastic city and if not, request that it not be sold anymore.
We plan on having many more enjoyable and thrilling visits to beautiful Scotland and Edinburgh, till then!
