Video: How Do the Discs Look?
As documentary series go, these 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen transfers are appropriate, if not marvelous. Much of the archival footage utilized is stretched and smeared woefully - it' not annoying or distracting, but it sure isn't elegant, that's for sure. But Contrast is handled well throughout, black levels are consistent, and detail (considering the age and condition of much of the material here) is pretty solid.
Audio: How Do the Discs Sound?
The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound mixes included on Narrow Escapes of WWII are much more impressive than their video counterparts. Narration is always audible, effects are placed in the mix elegantly, and the series as a whole has a cool, historical feel to it that adds significantly to its dramatic effect.
English SDH subtitles are included.
