Titles were not planned for Australian release in HD. As it was shot HD I prefer the best quality available.

4.0 out of 5 stars A helicopter of a ride over Briittania 16 Jun. 2011
By Bill Lockhart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Pleasant, interesting flight over many beautiful sites, not all of which are identified and some of which are redundant. Some concentration of the lens on pretty pictures of no consequence or significance (farm fields, etc.) while unusual pieces of landscape or architecture which look to have historical or geographical interest are blinked at with nary a hint of identification. The Scotland video was lovely; the England video was visually stimulating but was narrated by a voice which seemed artificially breathy, sweet and so quiet as to be drowned out by the "background" music. Might be a good idea to take dramamine first if one is susceptible to the effects of motion on peripheral vision. Truthfully, I expected more but didn't get it. Not quite disappointing; but then again, not first class, either.
I haven't watched Ireland or Wales, yet; if further review will be edifying it will be supplied in an update.

5.0 out of 5 stars VISIONS OF BRITAIN AND IRELAND 12 Jan. 2014
By AD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
The DVD is just wonderful, the photography is truly excellent and the accompanying audio is perfect. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in revisiting places from their childhood and or as my husband and I are doing as a substitute for being unable to go there because of our health.

We just sit and enjoy ourselves, and think ourselves lucky we could have this opportunity.... thank you AM

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Beautiful! 1 Jun. 2011
By William Bradley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This set is beautifully filmed and narrated. The music is excellent and unobtrusive, and the transfer is clear and crisp.
But the scenery! Absolutely beautiful. No video can do justice to the beauty of the Irish countryside, but this one comes darned close!
This is available on DVD, but don't do it. Get the BluRay. This is one of those disks that will absolutely justify the extra expense.

I always try to find the negatives in my reviews just to give balance but the only one I can come up with on this is that the narration is a bit outdated. They still tout the "Celtic Tiger" economy for example. But that is the worst I can say about this.

5.0 out of 5 stars These make BluRay and big screens worthwhile. 4 July 2013
By Kenneth Youngstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
These aerial tours are simply gorgeous. The BluRay quality is first rate and you see the countries in a way the on-the-ground visitor never could. I am always amazed at how close the helicopter seems to the scene but how infrequently people on the ground react. Sometimes the limited narration seems a bit over-the-top, but you have the option of turning it off, leaving only the music. The whole series is well worth having.
5.0 out of 5 stars This Blu-ray set has breath-taking high-definition aerial views of Great Britain and Ireland 11 Aug. 2014
By Carol the Dabbler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This Blu-ray set has breath-taking high-definition aerial views of Great Britain and Ireland, including many of the places we have visited in Great Britain. Fortunately, the narration has an option for subtitles, which is good since the narrators have the local accent of the places they narrate and they can be a little hard to understand at times.
