You are quite right the quality does not match the latest Zulu DVD. The worst point is the picture has been drastically cropped from the original aspect ratio of 2.35:1 to 1.78:1.

Dear Andrew,
I have to say that we waited 20 years for a VHS version - we kept being told by the BBC that the original print of the film was not of sufficient quality. Your experience with the DVD version seems to confirm this.
