RE: Quite A Colourful Little Collection!
on 22 March 2017
This is quite excellent in it's content and presentation, and stands up to any similar documentary of which I have seen to date (with the exception of "The World At War").
The sound and visual quality is perfectly fine; and it is not plagued by a loud distracting soundtrack like so many 'PBS America' documentaries are. And of course Robert Powell makes a grand job in his off screen dialogues.
My only criticism would be that it moves very fast, and so I would not recommend it to anyone who does not have previous knowledge of WWII. Personally, I think the series could have been a little more spaced out, allowing the viewer more time to digest the information. The narration is practically non-stop, which does get very tiring! But as stated, this is a superb little package and definitely well worth a 5 STAR rating.
I would be interested to find out how long each episode actually is in this DVD series, because I am sure these are longer than the 60 x minutes each versions from the 'UK History Channel'?
Hope this helps . . .
