Does anyone know if the the BBC or similar plan to put out any Blu Ray stuff.

Im looking for any of the BBC at the Proms Hi Def broadcasts from Norah Jones..Paul Weller...Amy Winehouse...Corrine Bailey Rae.

Or maybe tv shows like ROBIN HOOD...BLEAK HOUSE...HOTEL BABYLON..

Spooks and Life on Mars were not made in HD.


Torchwood would be great though. One of the cleanest HD pictures i've seen and the BBC HD feed is on a par with the majority of disc releases we've had.

I believe the BBC's Planet Earth is already available for pre-order. Since Warner Home Video releases BBC programming in the US it is available for both formats.

You mean other than documentaries?


It's a bit early, don't forget that very few shows are shot in HD and none are shot on film.


In terms of films we've had Layer Cake and James Bond. We're also due Sense and Sensibility, Lawrence of Arabia and Battle of Britain. Of course, how "British" they are is up for debate.

Its a Fox/MGM title and all Fox titles are in limbo currently. We've been told for like several weeks now that Fox will announce something soon.

I sure hope so. This is one of my highly-anticipated titles, since the only version I currently have is the first DVD release, which isn't even anamorphic.

Has anyone seen that Football Commercial with Shawn Merriman and Steven Jackson with the Last of the Mohican music playing in the background. It makes me wanna watch that movie so bad. Its the coolest commercial ever.

The Last of the Mohicans, Dancing With Wolves and Moulin Rouge are at the top of my BD most wanted list...nice to see that Twister, another personal favorite is coming in a few months.

Last Of The Mohicans is near the top of my wish list too, but only if it's the original theatrical release, not the watered down director's cut.


Thankfully I have a bootlegged Laserdisc copy of the theatrical. The only thing superior in the DC is Chingachgook's closing monologue.

Just curious. Does it matter to you folks what the audio will be on these titles or would you buy them regardless for the upgrade of picture quality?
