'The World at War' is one of my all-time favorite TV series. I watched them all at least once on PBS as a kid. I remember the searing theme music playing as pictures of soldiers and civilians who were victims of the conflict, faded one into the next. The last image is a little boy. Normal at first, his face becomes engulfed in flames and morphs into a skeletal visage over the last dramatic chords.
Movie Muser reports on the upcoming restored Blu-Ray edition of the series. The imagery and sound has been vastly improved with 3.5 million corrections in the 26 episode series.
I'll be getting this collection as soon as it's available.
