Overview

Andrew Grieve's massive miniseries Horatio Hornblower comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a biography of author C.S. Lewis, a primer on nautical lingo, a making-of featurette, and a documentary about England's warships. This is an excellent DVD that should entertain fans of sweeping epics.
