5.0 out of 5 stars BBC-DVD: Why Won't You Take My Money???, 4 Jun. 2007
This review is from: David Attenborough - Attenborough in Paradise and Other Personal Voyages [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
I caught a rare glimpse of "Attenborough in Paradise" on American cable TV some years back; since then I've searched for ANYTHING with Sir David's name on it. Although I am quite pleased with the "Planet Earth" series of DVDs, it would be wonderful if DVDs on the Birds of Paradise were made available to us poor slobs in the US, i.e., formatted for Region 1. To all BBC-DVD studio employees: When finished pressing a bajillion discs of Sir David's DVDs for the UK, please press the "REGION 1" button and run me off a few copies -- and please, keep the original narration (none of that Sigourney Weaver nonsense). I eagerly await your reply...

Gerry: Get a Region Free DVD player and watch any DVD made anywhere in the world, whenever you want to. You can find any number of players for sale on the internet; I bought mine three years ago from a retailer in Chicago for $129.00 (Toshiba with HDMI) and I've never had a problem with it. I buy all the Attenborough DVD's from Amazon.UK because, even when they are released in the USA, they are frequently edited-down or the narrator has been changed (e.g. Sigourney). There is one problem looming, however. Sony is now releasing DVDs in the USA that may not play on region free players. Amazon warns of this in the product description section of DVDs sold through their USA site.

Oh Dear
how sad that this is happening. Attenborough is almost a national institution, why oh why should the Americans be excluded?, this is a terrible state of affairs! I am an avid viewer and find that the world would just be a better place if everyone could enjoy watching. Poor show!
