Considering their age, I was only three when they were first televised back in 1966, and the poor quality of its original 16mm film, this Blu Ray HD transfer is quite a step up in quality over everything else we have witnessed in the past.

Those expecting great clarity may be disappointed, and in certain episodes especially with Mr Caraway the Fishmonger, you can clearly see that the very old original film has seen better days, with the picture quality almost on par with the standard dvd losing a lot of its clarity and detail.

We must not forget that Camberwick Green was the very first television programme to be broadcast in Colour all those years ago, and the choice of film used was hardly ideal for quality and longevity.

Certain episodes particularly Peter the Postman and Jonathan Bell are particularly impressive, you can clearly see the bits of string used to manipulate the characters arms and heads suspended from the trees and sky.

Its a real surprise that anyone thought it would be a good idea to have a go at digitally enhancing very old 16mm film, but its a testimony to the almost cult status of the Trumptonshire trilogy that we can enjoy Camberwick Green like we have never seen it before.

The sound quality has certainly improved and this new HD transfer is certainly clearer than anything we have heard before, but certain episodes are really beyond 21C digital help with immense picture grain and quality almost on par with the standard dvd, but all is not doom and gloom with a few episodes pretty spectacular and worth the tenner asking price.

It's strange to think that a 60's BBC children's tv show has been given a Blu-ray release, but this is far from a basic upscale to a new format - this is a lovingly and meticulously restored release from the original film negatives, overseen by the BBC. Anyone familiar with this legendary childhood defining show (which was one of the first to be shown in colour, and regularly repeated right into the 80s), will remember it's charm, simplicity and wonderful stop motion animation. However, until now the only release has been a DVD, which was very dull, had a considerable amount of noise, hiss, and wobble. Fast forward six years, and the original footage was located, re-scanned at high resolution, digitised, cleaned and balanced. And it's quite simply, wonderful. The picture is pristine, bright, and boldly colourful and the sound is perfection. As if that's not awesome enough, it's dual format, so includes both the Blu-ray and DVD, and you get a digital copy to boot. This is a very special release and it's so great to see such time, care and dedication given to such an old classic. I only hope that the same team who put this together can go on to give Trumpton the same treatment!

The quality of this reissue of an old childhood favourite is superb, and although most of us would watch these episodes in any quality, it is a treat to see them so clearly. Speaking as someone who did not even have a colour television as a child, this bluray is an extra treat! The work which has gone into the restoration has obviously been a labour of love. Don't think twice, buy this and join the queue for the later restorations as well. Don't even pretend you are buying this for the children or grandchildren, sit back and indulge yourself.

This is a (mainly technical) review for Camberwick Green (Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy - Re-scanned 2011 by the BBC) released in 2011.

There are some films and shows that are rated as being in the stratosphere of unlikeliness for release on the still relatively new high-definition Blu-ray format. 'Camberwick Green' must certainly rate as one of these shows - but here it is!

I'm not going to review the show itself - enough has been said about it and there are plenty of comments to read elsewhere. If you're like me - a 40-something child of the 70s who grew up with this show - you will be primarily interested in hearing about what the show looks and sounds like on Blu-ray.

Every episode has been lovingly cleaned and restored. The colour is bright and the soundtrack is at a suitably high volume with little or no hiss. It must be remembered, however, that the original films were sourced on 16mm. 16mm film of the 60s never looked the best, but this is the best 'Camberwick Green' has ever looked. There is a certain point-of-view that 'old' material like this does not benefit from the high-definition treatment and should therefore be avoided. It is not a philosophy I agree with and is one that generally takes its benchmark from the latest HD digital technology in cinema and on television. In my opinion, anything sourced on film will always look better on Blu-ray than on standard DVD, and deserves to be exploited.

A brief word on the packaging: This is a 'triple-play' release; a Blu-ray disc and a DVD which also contains a digital copy housed in an official Amaray Blu-ray face-on-face double disc case.
