5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Brilliance !!, 12 Mar 2014
Classic British war story. This shows you do not have to have a megabudget and special effects to create a brilliant film.The film has great acting, an inventive, interesting storyline and some wonderful photography .Also the ending has to be one of the best in cinematography.
This restored version is a must for any collection

Plus all the episodes have been digitally cleaned such that the picture is crystal clear with vibrant colours. I have never enjoyed Star Trek as much as this edition. It allows you to appreciate the stories which are often dealing with quite deep ideas written by some of the best Sci-Fi writers of the time
