Excellent series

I remember this series The World At War when it was aired on Sunday afternoons in the 1970's, and for me it remains the best documentary on the second world war ever made. Extremely comprehensive coverage of the whole war, with relevant archive footage. As it was made in the 1970s, many of those who participated in or otherwise experienced the war were still alive to be interviewed. You will learn something new with each episode. The Blu-ray transfer has cleaned up much of the old footage, put it into a 16:9 format and added subtitles. If you only ever buy one documentary on the second world war - it should be this one.
