Super restoration of a much-loved classic,
This review is from: Pride and Prejudice (Special Edition) [DVD]  (DVD)
This a truly wonderful restoration of the BBC's definitive adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and has given a whole new lease of life to my favourite period drama. Long-time fans will definitely enjoy this special edition. Compared to the first DVD edition which I have been watching all these years, the colours and sounds on this edition are vibrant, luscious and warm instead of being washed out and faded. The skin tones sometimes do look a bit pink, but this can be easily adjusted on your TV set and is really quite a minor gripe compared to the depth of colours we can finally see. I hope more period dramas will get this rejuvenating treatment. Well done, BBC.
