5.0 out of 5 stars Camberwick Green will never look better than this, 6 Feb 2012
This review is from: Camberwick Green (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy - Re-scanned 2011 by the BBC) (DVD)
Since the days of 405 line black and white television the daily lives and tribulations of the folk of Camberwick Green have been entertaining both the young and the young at heart.

As anyone who has seen Camberwick Green on television or DVD will attest, the surviving prints had seen better days; with warping, drop outs, scratches, dirt and colour fading from scene to scene. The good news is that restoration work performed for this blu-ray has worked wonders on both the visual and audio elements. To put is simply, you can now view the programme better than it appeared on the original transmission in 1966. On first viewing I was amazed at the little details I'd never noticed before.

Blu-ray was never intended for something as low definition as 16mm film, and the disc does show plenty of film grain and noise artifacts from the restoration work. However, after a few minutes you will stop noticing these and focus on the stories. When compared to all previous versions it is simply stunning. Those without blu-ray player are not forgotten as you also receive a dvd version as well. By way of extras there is an all too brief interview with the great Gordon Murray himself.

In short I thoroughly recommend the blu-ray of the restored Camerwick Green. Money well worth spent.
