I must say I doubt what the man in the description is saying about them having possibly been shot in 16:9 ratio, as Sharpe's Challenge and Sharpe's Peril, the two later additions to the series, were both shot in 16:9 widescreen...and presented as such on their respective DVD releases. Therefore, I assume they would have done the same had these been shot on 35mm film. The original 14 episodes are presented here and described on the box as being 4:3, but as the man in the description correctly says...they're slightly letterboxed...almost 14:9...which is very curious indeed, but why would they have done that had they been able to attain a 16:9 print?

If anyone else can offer any information about how Sharpe was shot, and why they're not completely full screen 4:3 on the DVD's, I for one would be very interested to hear it.
