I don't have access to this channel but went ahead and ordered the DVD back in December. Finally arrived 2 days ago.

I was disappointed in it. It seems to want to cram everything into 10 second bites and not go into any depth. They even took scenes of Cary Grant in North By Northwest and completely scrambled them.

Scenes of commuters exiting trains were done at double speed completely obliterating what I was looking for.

I felt it was very shallow and could have cut some sections and slowed down the action on others.

Oh well.
